Under what conditions are emergent conflicts peacefully resolved, under what conditions do they become violent? This book presents a new theory of emergent conflict and cooperation and illustrates it with case studies of both violent and peaceful conflicts. The book discusses the impact of contexts on conflicts, and presents a brief history of the 'preventors' of war. It offers two empirical case studies - one on land reforms, with a statistical study of both peaceful and violent land reforms of the 20thC., one on the emergent conflicts over climate change. It concludes with a discussion of peaceful change and political community. John Paul Lederach describes it as 'an important landmark' that 'should be on the shelves of peace scholars, practitioners and policy makers.'
