Shortly before the Middle East peace talks began in November 1991, the United States Institute of Peace conducted a four-day simulation of what was about to unfold in the diplomatic dialogue between two enemy countries, Israel and Syria, whose representatives had never before sat together.This volume presents a description of that exercise and its implications for peacemaking and conflict resolution in the Middle East, a discussion of simulations and their utility for diplomats and for the field of conflict resolution, and a discussion among the participants of prospects for the overall Middle East peace negotiations.
The Vietnam war lingers on in the US, because it was such an unexpected failure, echoing towards the Iraq war and now the Afghan conflict. War poetry is nothing new, because masses of emotion will flow through the media, colleges and homes. And sometimes verses are the only option to our sticky affairs of living/working/fighting; either that or too much to drink -- -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The word "poetry" can put readers off but it can touch the hearts and souls of those of us who care. These poems do exactly that. They put the most disastrous conflict that America has been involved into an historical context that is as relevant as possible to the war in Afghanistan.

Water conflicts in India have now percolated to every level. They are aggravated by the relative paucity of frameworks, policies and mechanisms to govern the use of water resources. Based on the premise that understanding and documenting different types of water conflict cases in all their complexity would contribute to informed public debate and facilitate their resolution, Forum for Policy Dialogue on Water Conflicts in India, a collaborative initiative of the WWF project a Dialogue on Water, Food and Environmenta (TM), documented a number of such case studies.
One of its kind in India, this book brings together an impressive sixty-three case studies a " summarized status of the conflicts, the issues involved and their current position a " and gives us a glimpse into a the million revoltsa (TM) that are brewing around water. While recognizing that each conflict is a microcosm of wider conflicts, the editors have classified these cases into eight broad themes that try to capture the dominant aspect of the conflict. These are: contending water uses; dams and displacement; equity-access-allocations; micro-level conflicts; water quality; trans-boundary conflicts; privatization; sand excavation and mining.
With a mix of academics and activists as contributors, the book makes an important contribution to a new discourse on water in general, and water conflicts and conflict resolution in particular.
