‘Given the breadth in the conflict and conflict management literatures, there have been few if any compilations that offered good coverage and quality depth, until now. This work provides both a good and timely review as well as insightful integration and extension of existing conflict research. As we would expect from these authors, the writing is good throughout and the chapters are well-organized, focused and concise. This is good reading that is sure to become a staple for conflict researchers.’
– Allen C. Amason, Dean, College of Business Administration, Georgia Southern University, US

'The Handbook of Conflict Management Research is an important integration of the research literature that has blossomed over the last couple of decades. This volume of spectacular pieces of work will be a critical addition to the library of any serious scholar of conflict.’
– Max H. Bazerman, Harvard Kennedy School, US
