The Crossroads of Conflict is, in short, both a practical guide for anyone seeking to create profound, satisfying, heart-felt conversations with their opponents, and a set of penetrating theoretical reflections and explanations for why conflict resolution has proven so successful in helping people resolve, transform, and transcend their conflicts.
