High Conflict

If you are worried about the way we deal with divisive conflicts and don’t know where to start, this is the place to start. Great stories. Powerful insights. Useful suggestions about things you can do.

i enjoyed this book so much that I am convinced that it will replace Getting to Yes as the best book for newcomers to conflict resolution and peacebuilding to turn to first. Ripley is not only one of the best journalists around today, she is helping her colleagues shift the way they cover the news so that the stories we read in the news reflect the realities of our divided society but do not make our divisions any deeper.

Everyone interested in peacebuilding and conflict resolution should read this book. It is so good that you might want to read it in a single sitting. So, don’t start it late at night!
