Regular readers undoubtedly recall that Missouri’s DR Center will hold a symposium on October 7 entitled, “Moving Negotiation Theory from the Tower of Babel: Toward a World of Mutual Understanding.”
Speakers at the symposium collectively developed a reading list to use as a common base of knowledge at the symposium.
Some of the items on the reading list are classics and some are newer and provide untraditional perspectives.
I am taking advantage of this opportunity to read more deeply and widely about negotiation by reading the things on using a diverse list suggested by our speakers. I have been in this field quite a while and read a lot, including intense years as a graduate student, but what I haven’t read would fill a library.
I have posted a series of conversations with symposium speakers about the readings they suggested to serve as a kind of virtual book club.
Although these posts would be no substitute for reading the publications themselves, they provide a good introduction and can help you decide what you would like to read yourself.
I encourage you to join the book club with any comments that you might like to make.
