From teaching how to engage in public debate about war to underscoring the forces that give rise to international conflict, this conflict resolution tool examines the tough practice of peacemaking. Focusing on the successes and failures in seven of the world's war zones, this work explores why wars have continued to rage in places like Iraq, Israel and Palestine, Ireland, Rwanda, and Chechnya, and why many well-intentioned attempts at making peace have been only partially successful. Difficult lessons about how to combine hope with realism and urgency with patience are also provided, as is a complex, integrated picture of factors and dynamics inherent in peacemaking at the local and international level.
