Plowshares Into Swords: Musings on the Anatomy of Conflict
I believe we can still be good, not because of some seismic innovation or effort, but simply by making one more effort to put the common good above our own selfish interest. Trying to decipher the many nuances of human conflict might well be the ultimate 'riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma.' In Plowshares into Swords, Dr. 'Mac' Cox takes us on a journey, explaining in simple terms just what it is that keeps nations and neighbors from getting along. He then gives us an arsenal of conflict-resolution techniques that we can use to solve the thousands of conflicts, small and huge, that run rampant through our lives. This book is essential for finding peace with the people around us.
