This book gives the reader an unreserved and through version of various trouble spots, the world over with a simulation exercise on each dispute… On the whole a simulating, thought provoking book, and the “simulations” in exercise form will be of great use to academicians and students of these quandaries as well.
The chapters are well-researched and peppered with information including timeline, historical documents, maps wherever applicable and so forth. Simulations are written by the regional experts who exhibit a deep and intricate understanding of the local history, flavour and the main areas of conflict. No wonder, in many cases, these serve as models which can be adapted for designing simulations for varied situations. Taken together, these are designed to be useful for administrators, negotiators and peace keeping forces, as well as students.
This book contains a series of six ready-made simulations, each of which addresses issues of peacemaking in politically of ethnically-divided societies…. The chapters are well-written and clear, and the background materials would serve very well as the core briefing documents for participants. Most of the simulations are written by regional experts with a rich understanding of local history, actors, and the conflict itself…. This book is a valuable contribution.
Negotiating Peace in Deeply Divided Societies makes an innovative application of stimulations training exercises for peacemaking and puts the readers in the role of key actors during the conflict resolution process, giving them an understanding of the risk and opportunity.
Radha Kumar's book may be seen as an attempt to train our negotiators to respond intelligently. It offers a series of simulations based on real-world negotiations here and overseas — in Northern Ireland, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Nagaland and Kashmir. There are also abstract simulations to investigate confidence-building measures and humanitarian interventions by the international community. The reader must put him or herself in the driving seat and steer the situation to closure.
This book teaches how to negotiate peace in deeply divided societies…. This book will be useful for administrators, negotiators and peace-keeping forces as also students of international understanding.
