This text is a comprehensive guide to the growing field of mediation, combining theoretical, practical, and policy perspectives. Classic mediation and negotiation topics and techniques are presented from a fresh perspectives. The authors weave together excerpts from key books and articles, relevant cases, statutes, and rules and regulations to provide a systematic look at the historical background, theory, ethics, and policy underlying mediation in the United States. They also provide practice guidance for mediators. The authors devote substantial attention to negotiation theory, to issues of mediator roles and styles, and to critical issues related to mediator behavior including diversity, fairness, and power concerns. The book embraces and encourages class discussion of the emerging and hotly debated issues relating to mediation. The Second Edition of Mediation Theory and Practice addresses many of the new policy initiatives, significant additions to the literature, and emerging case law in the mediation field that have developed since the First Edition was originally published.
