 More about the book: 

From the publisher’s website: Discussions in Dispute Resolution brings together the modern dispute resolution field’s most influential commentaries in its first few decades and reflects on what makes these pieces so important. This book collects 16 foundational writings, four pieces from each of the field’s primary subfields–negotiation, mediation, arbitration, and public policy. Each piece has four commenters who answer the question: why is this work a foundational piece in the dispute resolution field? The purpose in asking this simple question is fourfold: 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. Where possible, the book gives the authors of the original pieces the opportunity either to reflect on the piece itself or to respond to the other commenters.”
