About this book

Building upon Mitchell's earlier work, The Structure of International Conflict, this volume surveys the field of conflict analysis and resolution in the twenty-first century, exploring the methods which people have sought to mitigate destructive processes including the creative and innovative new ways of resolving insoluble disputes.

About the authors

Christopher Mitchell is an Emeritus Professor at the School for Conflict Analysis and Resolution, George Mason University, USA. He has written extensively on informal mediation, track two facilitation and local level peace-building. In 1981 he published one of the first ever textbooks in the field, The Structure of International Conflict, to which this volume is a follow up.

Reviews

“The Nature of Intractable Conflict is a valuable compendium, enriched by Mitchell’s pursuit of distilling relevant but over-researched topics. Moreover, his own insights scattered throughout the text links his survey of the subject of intractability with emerging trends in current scholarship, which makes this book a relevant signpost in new research.” (Ian Niccolo V. Tobia, European Review of International Studies, Vol. 3 (3), 2016)


"Chris Mitchell's Structure of International Conflict inspired a generation of academics and practitioners to enter the field of conflict analysis and resolution. Now, as he shows in this equally inspirational book, forty years on the field has grown enormously. This is a masterly survey of the current state of the art and an indispensable guide for all those, scholars and practitioners alike, who want to place themselves on the front line of research and practice." - Tom Woodhouse, University of Bradford, UK
