Gianni Picco and Gabrielle Rifkind The Fog of Peace

Peacemaking challenges every fundamental idea that we hold. Why should we talk to the enemy? What happens if people are nasty and brutish and we want to retaliate? How do we find the capacity not to hit back, trapping ourselves in endless cycles of violence? Gabrielle Rifkind and Picco reveal how the negotiator can succeed where institutions will often fail and how getting into the mind of the enemy can be far more persuasive than the most fearsome weapons.
