Reviews

From the reviews:

“Conflict, Interdependence, and Justice: The Intellectual Legacy of Morton Deutsch is many things: a celebration of Morton Deutsch’s life work, an introduction to new methods, a rubric for theory development, a self-help book, a manual for teachers and politicians, and a historical look at social psychology. … psychologists and graduate students who are interested in social justice, conflict, or political psychology would profit from reading the book. It would also be useful reading in a class on theory development or the history of social psychology.” (Helen C. Harton, PsycCRITIQUES, Vol. 57 (20), May, 2012)
