Windsor, Philip; Edited By Berdal, Mats
Philip Windsor (1935-2000) is widely acknowledged to have been among the brightest and most penetrating of thinkers in International Relations. This book brings together some of his most exciting and stimulating essays, covering many of the classic and most enduring issues in International Relations: the causes of wars; intervention and the use of force; the regulation of conflict; human rights and the tensions between order and justice. Windor's philosophical bias, together with his elegant prose and sheer breadth of knowledge, gave an underlying coherence and unity to all his writings. The essays include brilliant essays on East-West relations during the Cold War, arms control, Clausewitz's contribution to strategic thought, Henry Kissinger's scholarly contribution and the place of human rights and cultural dialogue in international politics. 246pp.

Mitchell, C. R.
An examination of human behaviour within the framework of conflict, in which the author attempts to answer questions pertaining to conflict by examining common structures and processes found in human conflicts in many settings. He demonstrates how such common features reveal themselves in conflicts as ostensibly different as international war and interpersonal disagreements in organizations. Ideas and insights are drawn from a wide variety of disciplines, including political science, international relations, social psychology and the sociology of conflict and are combined in a framework that provides a guide to the genesis and course of contemporary disputes, whether between states, communities, classes or families. Particular emphasis is laid upon the complex and interlocking structure of conflicts and the way in which internal differences affect the ability of adversaries to prosecute a conflict successfully, or conclude a compromise peace satisfactorily. Attention is also directed towards the psychology of "being in conflict" and how this affects the adversaries view of others, the behaviour used in this conflict and the range of outcomes considered feasible and acceptable. The study also attempts to deal with the problems of peacemaking for third parties and analyzes the type of actions open to potential intermediaries attempting to end or manage disruptive disputes. 355pp. N.B.
