Annotation Drawing on the Transcend approach to peace making, Searching for Peace provides a comprehensive guide to conflict resolution. The TRANSCEND method, now used by the UN as a guide to future conflict resolution approaches, applies to all conflict constellations. It has been used in Northern Ireland; Kashmir; Korea; the Gulf conflict; Ecuador and Peru; Kosovo; Guatemala and Honduras; and China and Tibet. Searching for Peace provides a wide ranging survey of past and present approaches to violent conflict prevention, and includes detailed analysis of over forty conflicts as case studies. It critiques the failures of recent peacekeeping and peacemaking efforts while presenting the multi-decade research and arguments that underlie the Transcend approach. Aiming to include all participants in the peace dialogue, TRANSCEND offers hopeful prescriptions for the future.
