Sinopsis

Description:
In our increasingly polarised society, there are constant calls for compromise, for coming together. For many, these are empty talking points - for Lucy Moore, they are a life's work. As an environmental mediator, she has spent the past quarter century resolving conflicts that appeared utterly intractable.

Here, she shares the most compelling stories of her career, offering insight and inspiration to anyone caught in a seemingly hopeless dispute. Moore has worked on wide-ranging issues - from radioactive waste storage to loss of traditional grazing lands. More importantly, she has worked with diverse groups and individuals: farmers, environmental activists, government agencies, corporations, tribal groups, and many more.

After decades spent at the negotiating table, she has learned that a case does not turn on facts, legal merit, or moral superiority. It turns on people. Through ten memorable stories, she shows how issues of culture, personality, history, and power effect environmental negotiations.

And she illustrates that equitable solutions depend on a healthy group dynamic. Both the mediator and opposing parties must be honest, vulnerable, open, and respectful. Easier said than done, but Moore proves that subtle shifts can break the logjam and reconcile even the most fiercely warring factions.

This book should be especially appealing to students in environmental studies, political science, and conflict resolution; academics and professionals in mediation and conflict resolution fields; and anyone concerned with environmental conflicts.
