Book Description

Public deliberation and group discussion can strengthen civil society, even when participants share a historical animosity. Recently, scholars have begun to study the dialogue that sustains these conversations, especially its power to unite and divide. In these twenty-four essays, contributors read public exchanges and their sustained dialogue in the context of race relations, social justice, ethnic conflicts, public safety, public management, community design, and family therapy. They especially focus on the college campus and its network of organizations and actors, in which open discussion might seem like an idealistic if not foolhardy gesture, but nevertheless is a crucial component of civic harmony.


Product Description

Review

Resolving Community Conflicts and Problems is a very timely, substantive, and much needed addition to the literature. Far too little is available on the topic of public deliberation and sustained dialogue. I have little doubt that this book will provide an important contribution to the field. -- Mark Umbreit, University of Minnesota
