This book lays out the limitless variety of the uses to which conflict resolution theory can be applied. Revealing the interconnections between conflict at all levels of society, Galtung argues that an equal variety of solutions are available to us, if we are willing to explore them.The book will be of interest to anyone who deals with conflict on a daily basis - such as teachers, social workers, parents and couples - as well as students of peace studies.
