The second section employs classical social psychological approaches to the topic of conflict. Group categorization and favoritism, a comprehensive social psychological model of conflict and intergroup relations are outlined. The final section presents current research on major conflict related topics, including conflict in Sri Lanka and the role of national identity in today's world. The theme and conclusion of the book is that conlict is our history, but it is born in our social identity and social psychology. Thus it is neither inevitable nor inherent in human nature.
