The Fog of Peace: The Human Face of Conflict Resolution by Gabrielle Rifkind and Giandomenico Picco
Institutions do not decide whom to destroy or to kill, whether to make peace or war; those decisions are the responsibility of individuals. This book argues that the most important aspect of conflict resolution is for antagonists to understand their opponents, their ambitions, their pains.
Gabrielle Rifkind and Giandomenico Pico present two very different experiences of international relations Rifkind as a psychotherapist now immersed in the politics of the Middle East, and Picco as a career diplomat with a successful record as a negotiator at the UN.
A thrilling and stimulating read Hans Blix, former Director-General of the International Atomic Energy Agency, and Head of UN Iraq inspections 2002 -2003
Fascinating, revelatory and insightful, The Fog of Peace is a remarkable book. Baroness Helena Kennedy QC
