Abstract:  There are alternatives to having the courts deal with disputes: e.g., arbitration, mediation, and negotiation. Such alternatives hold out the promise of dealing with conflicts in ways that are less destructive and more mutually satisfying than the court system. This book contains useful information about the different models used, and provides a partial survey of developments in the field. Unfortunately it is badly written; only those very interested in the field are likely to be able to wade through the stilted deadly prose. Perhaps the secret of successful dispute resolution is putting the disputing parties to sleep?
