Now In Print – Discussions In Dispute Resolution: The Foundational Articles

“I am thrilled to announce that Discussions in Dispute Resolution: The Foundational Articles (available here – for 30% off use this discount code – ALAUTHC4) has been published.  Andrea, Art and I couldn’t be happier to see it in print.

For those of you who are not familiar with the book, here’s a short description:

Discussions in Dispute Resolution constitutes both a celebration of the foundational writings of the dispute resolution field, a significant field of academic study for approximately 40 years, and a reflection of what makes these pieces so important.

In this book, the editors have identified 16 articles published before the year 2000, four from each of the field’s primary subfields—negotiation, mediation, arbitration, and public policy. In each section, the works appear in chronological order, and for each work four commenters answer the question: why is this work a foundational piece in the dispute resolution field? The purpose in asking this simple question is four-fold: to hail the field’s foundational generation and their work, to bring a fresh look at these articles, to engage the articles’ original authors where possible, and to challenge the articles with the benefit of hindsight.

Working on this book has been a labor of love, and the time we have spent on it has been totally worthwhile.  There are so many people to thank, primarily the 64 contributors to the book (thank you/thank you/thank you) and Alyson Carrel and her team (thank you/thank you/thank you) for putting together the virtual book launch focusing on origin stories of four of the 16 articles.  The videos from the interviews of those authors (Menkel-Meadow, Mnookin, Riskin, and Sternlight) are can be found here and will make a wonderful complement to any coursework using the book.

We hope you enjoy reading this book as much as we enjoyed putting it together!”
