Written by Bruce E. Barnes (Associate Professor of Conflict Resolution at the Matsunaga Institute for Peace), Culture, Conflict, and Mediation in the Asian Pacific is an advanced study in the art, skill, and invaluable practice of negotiating solutions to problematic situations between people, businesses, and governments. Culture, Conflict, and Mediation in the Asian Pacific specifically examines what can be learned from conflict resolution scenarios seen in the nations of China, Taiwan, Singapore, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Philippines, Indonesia, and Thailand, from ancient processes to newly evolving "ADR" techniques. Chapters focus upon the practices of each nation in turn, and over thirty case studies robustly illuminate the points and suggestions that can be learned for global application. An advanced reference and resource especially recommended for study and reference by aspiring and professional mediators, whether in law, social work, or other fields.
