    Wonderful book for scholars and practitioners of ADR, September 20, 2007
    Sara (GA) –

    This review is from: Dispute Resolution: Negotiation, Mediation, and Other Processes (Hardcover)

    A wonderful text book for those working or studying in the field. This book is written for law students and some chapters are drier than others, so beware that it doesn’t read as easily as some other ADR texts.

    Each topic is analyzed from multiple perspectives, accompanied by quotations from experts with distinct backgrounds (attorneys, professors, mediators, professional negotiators, judges depending on the chapter) that explain various points of view.

    Each chapter is broken down into sub-headings, for example the Mediation chapter includes sections on the process, the role of the public, social science assessments, regulation and enforcement, and professional responsibility. Each of these sections is further elaborated into narrower topics. Peppered throughout the text, you will find thought-provoking questions that probe your own opinion on a particular situation.

    Slightly dry for the novice interested in mediation as a side-job or hobby, but for those who really want to learn about the legal, ethical and practical issues in all types of ADR with real-life and fictional examples, this book can’t be beat. I have found something fascinating and insightful on every single page so far.
