Want to help a soldier in Iraq? My friend, who has more superfluous degrees than even me :) has some down time while stationed in Iraq for the next yr. He asked me if I could recommend some books/shows along these lines:
"Books for thinking about conflict management and arbitration, cross-cultural skills, negotiation, persuasion, and reconciliation. Also: group level persuasion and the long term management thereof (e.g., cults and communes, changing societal mores)."
So I made an Amazon list for him. I kinda changed his request to include any book/movie/entity that has taught me how to understand people with aims to negotiation/conflict resolution/etc. to make the world a better place. So if you have a few moments, think of anything like that in your life, and let me know so I can add it to the list for him.
Note about the list:
They may not be the most academic of books because sometimes the most I have learned comes from either fiction or a case study type book. And as I don't have downtime, and haven't for many years, many of these I haven't read myself yet, and these are marked "speculative" because they have been recommended to me, but I cannot personally vouch for them.
