The Five Percent: Finding Solutions to Seemingly Impossible Conflicts The Five Percent: Finding Solutions to Seemingly Impossible Conflicts

by Dr. Peter T. Coleman

Book Reviews

"As the world gets smaller and more complex, we have to improve our ability to live together peaceably -- whether it is in our homes, our streets, or between nations. This thoughtfully constructed examination of human conflict and how we can resolve it is a welcome antidote to the contentious times in which we live. Peter T. Coleman delivers hope in this guidebook to untangling our most intractable problems."
-- Geoffrey Canada

"This book is not business as usual. It challenges how most of us think about conflict and peace, and backs it up with leading-edge research. It will prove useful to anyone dealing with complex conflicts in many settings whether they are small or large, personal or political."
-- Her Majesty Queen Noor

"With the benefit of years of research and expereince, Peter T. Coleman has expanded the science of conflict to take on problems that previously seemed beyond resolution. Combining the practicality of Getting to Yes with the surprising insights of The Tipping Point, The Five Percent is a necessary guide for doing the impossibly -- resolving conflict in all its manifestations."
-- Mary Robinson, former president of Ireland and United Nations High Commissioner on Human Rights

"This book is an important, original contribution to understanding destructive, intractable conflicts and how to change them. It is well-written and can be read with much profit by the general reader as well as by conflict specialists."
-- Morton Deutsch, E.L. Thorndike Professor Emeritus of Psychology and Director Emeritus of the International Center for Cooperation and Conflict Resolution (ICCCR)
