Subject:Tools for an International Negotiator, A List
Time:01:14 pm
Hey Guys,

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.

Thanks!

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.

This might be an odd one, but I think this book is very extensible to adult discussions/conflicts as well. It's jsut a good book on basic LISTENING skills. I entirely think it helps me deal with adults too:

http://www.amazon.com/How-Talk-Kids-Will-Listen/dp/0380811960/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1245242432&sr=1-1

And I had to read this one in an integrated studies course of social studies my freshman year of college. I don't remember so much about the details, only that I DID actually read the entire book and remembered there was a lot of science backing it. I read it about 15 years ago now.

http://www.amazon.com/Cults-Healing-Coercion-Marc-Galanter/dp/0195123700/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1245239297&sr=1-3

Thanks so much! I have added these to the list for him. I have the sibling bk by the same authors as How to Talk so Kids will Listen :D I'm hoping to get time to read it someday

Getting to Yes has been in every negotiation, cross cultural negotiation, mediation, and alternative dispute resolution class I've taken. It's pretty simple, but I don't get the impression that more academic work adds much to it.

How to make friends and influence people might not be a bad place, either, although I've not read it.

Thanks so much! I have added these to the list for him. Sorry about the other stuff, guess I shouldn't have mentioned about the birth commentary but I didn't know you couldn't see those entries. I hope it doesn't add to your stress.
