This book presents confrontation as the key theme of the post-cold war world. It argues that the world could be changed dramatically for the better if people and governments were to adopt a new way of thinking and dealing with conflict that takes us beyond confrontation. The examples of war, international economics, environmental decay, and racial conflict show that in today's interdependent world, the problems we face are interdependent too. The central tenet is that it is almost always more pragmatic to act cooperatively. Most important, the book shows that cooperative problem solving is not mere pie in the sky idealism.

MEDIA REVIEWS
.,."The author concludes that the traditional win-lose approach to conflict resolution is counterproductive and in the face of global interdependence shortsighted and dangerous. Instead, we must focus on win-win outcomes in which all parties benefit. This is not only rational but smart policy. The book presents a good summary of existing literature on the issues of conflict and conflict resolution. Recommended for upper-division undergraduate and graduate courses."-Choice
