0 Reviews
A mixture of theoretical analysis and case studies from Asia, Africa, Europe, Latin America and the Middle East, this book examines non-violent direct action, political action, economic sanctions and social movements as alternative remedies in the struggle for justice. The authors thus address the basic questions that underlie current debates in international politics over the use of preventive diplomacy, humanitarian intervention and international enforcement action.

About the author (1994)

Heidi Burgess has a PhD in sociology and has been working as a conflict resolution teacher, scholar, and practitioner for almost forty years. For the last twenty-two years, she has co-directed with her husband Guy Burgess, the University of Colorado Conflict Information Consortium, where she and Guy have developed CRInfo.org, Beyond Intractability.org, and the forthcoming online portal on governance and peace, the Governance Forum. She also teaches peace and conflict studies and communication at the University of Colorado and conflict resolution and international studies at the University of Denver's Korbel School.

After receiving his PhD in sociology from the University of Colorado, doing postdoctoral work at MIT, and spending several years doing public policy work, Guy Burgess helped establish, with his wife Heidi, the University of Colorado Conflict Information Consortium. For more than twenty years with the Consortium, he has worked to make information on constructive approaches to conflict more accessible. Building on the Consortium's Beyond Intractability knowledge base, Guy leads the development of the Governance Forum, a next generation, online knowledge base and learning community. He also teaches with the Colorado Peace and Conflict Studies Program and the Josef Korbel School of International Studies.
