Conflict Regulation. AAAS Study Guides on Contemporary Problems, No. 7. Test Edition.
This guide provides an introduction to the theories of why conflicts occur and presents models and techniques of conflict regulation. Some of the topics discussed are: legal regulation, the deterrence model, bargaining, third-party intervention, and self-limiting conflict processes. As examples of the latter processes, the Gandhian model of self-limiting conflict and the Norwegian resistance during World War II are presented. A report is then given on a teaching program allowing college students opportunities for involvement in community conflicts. Finally, an annotated bibliography and a group of classroom exercises are presented. (BB)
