From the Publisher:

In this thought-provoking, passionately written book, Bernard Mayer — an internationally acclaimed leader in the field — dares practitioners to ask the hard questions about alternative dispute resolution.

  • What’s wrong with conflict resolution?
  • Why aren’t more individuals and organizations using conflict resolution when they have a problem?
  • Why doesn’t the public know more about it?
  • What are the limits of conflict resolution?
  • When does conflict resolution work and when does it not?

Offering a committed practitioner’s critique of the profession of mediation, arbitration, and alternative dispute resolution, Beyond Neutrality focuses on the current crisis in the field of conflict resolution and offers a pragmatic response.
