Managing Conflict Resolution by Madonna M. Murphy, Sharon L. Banas

Conflict arises in every relationship: within families, partnerships, groups, and nations. Whether a dispute turns destructive or constructive often depends on how it is handled. Managing Conflict Resolution examines the causes of conflict in homes, schools, and the wider world. It also explores different methods people have developed to guide conflicts to positive 'win/win' resolutions. History and current events topics covered include: the Cuban Missile Crisis; the Laramie Treaty of 1868; the creation of the U.S. Constitution; the relationship between Hutus and Tutsis in Rwanda; how leaders such as Cesar Chavez use conflict resolution in labor disputes; and, how former gang members work together to stop gang violence.
