New Directions in Conflict Theory
Conflict Resolution and Conflict Transformation

Edited by:


August 1991 | 240 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd

Published in Association with International Social Science Council

This is a timely work which explores the validity of rational and subjective approaches to conflict resolution, considers the value of international law and organizations for addressing complex social phenomena, and outlines a structural approach to international conflicts. In addition it extends the analysis of conflict transformation to new issues on the international agenda, such as antagonism between urban and rural areas and threat to the environment.
