In this newly updated, enriched edition, the authors have retained the primary content of their previous text while making significant changes to the manner in which they present and organize the materials. The result is a timely, current publication that has been effectively streamlined without any sacrifice in important substance.

The new edition provides:

  • Important updates to relevant mediation case law;
  • A rich description of the social and legal strands that shaped the development of contemporary dispute resolution theory and practice;
  • Comprehensive new study materials and discussion questions examining ethical issues for mediators;
  • State-of-the-art analyses of the advocate's role in mediation; and
  • Expanded treatment of how the mediation process is used to deal with major societal problems.

The revised teacher's manual (available in Fall 2013) significantly expands the number of simulation exercises that reflect these broad-based themes.

This book also is available in a three-hole punched, alternative loose-leaf version printed on 8.5 x 11 inch paper with wider margins and with the same pagination as the hardbound book.
