The Handbook is a collection of essays written by various experts, both theorists and practitioners, in the field of conflict resolution. It is divided into eight parts and 27 chapters. The parts deal with distinct substantive areas from 'Interpersonal and intergroup processes' to 'Creativity and change' to 'Models of practice', just to name a few. Where possible, the editors have travelled the path from theory to practice within each part, beginning with a theory based foundational chapter, followed by a chapter linking the theory specifically to a conflict resolution context and concluding with a chapter drawing out implications for training and practice. Indeed, the gap between theory and practice and how to build a solid two way bridge between the two is a recurring theme throughout the book.
