About this book

This edited volume presents selected papers capturing Herbert Kelman’s unique and seminal contributions to the social psychology of conflict analysis and resolution, with a special emphasis on the utility of concepts for understanding and constructively addressing violent and intractable conflicts. Central concepts covered include perceptual processes, basic human needs, group and normative processes, social identity, and intergroup trust, which form the basis for developing interactive methods of conflict resolution.

Reviews

“The volume includes chapters and articles that Kelman published describing the theory and practice of interactive problem-solving workshops for conflict resolution, framed by contextual information about his life and career. … This book outlines the scholarship to make a strong case for employing critical thinking and then explains how it can be done. I highly recommend this book and hope it will be shared with everyone.” (Sherri McCarthy, PsycCRITIQUES, Vol. 62 (28), July, 2017)
