Duncan Published online: 20 August 2015 Springer Science+Business Media New York 2015 In Realizing Peace: A Constructive Conflict Approach, Louis Kriesberg provides a detailed and very enlightening history of U.S. involvement in foreign conflicts since the end of World War II. His book sets upon the auspicious task of changing the nature of international conflict, arguing that U.S. intervention should be implemented in a more constructive manner to produce more favorable outcomes in terms of mitigating conflict and promoting actual peace. The lessons of this book are extensive, but one of the key arguments Kriesberg presents is that more open dialogue, dialogue that includes the representatives of all the participants of conflicts, is necessary to provide a more in-depth, violence-reducing context for discussion (p. 10, p. 290). A greater understanding of the context-specific nature of a conflict leads to more respectful negotiations towards peace. While this idea may seem either too simplistic or too unwieldy, Kriesberg offers numerous concrete examples where inclusivity may have created a more favorable negotiation http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png The Review of Austrian Economics Springer Journals
