Description: In 1985, police bombed the Philadelphia community occupied by members of the black counterculture group MOVE (short for ldquo;The Movementrdquo;).nbsp; What began fifteen years earlier as a neighborhood squabble provoked by conflicting lifestyles ended in the destruction of sixty-one homes and the death of eleven residents - five of them children.nbsp; Some 250 people were left homeless. Was this tragedy the only solution to the conflict?nbsp; Were John Africa and his morally and ecologically idealistic followers ldquo;too crazyrdquo; to negotiate with?nbsp; The authors interviewed MOVE members and their neighbors, third-party intervenors, and representatives of the Philadelpia administration in the 1970s, and draw on their own knowledge of the field of dispute resolution.nbsp; More than simply describing a terrible event, they examine the dynamics of conflict, analyzing attempts at third-party mediation and the possibility of resolution without violence.nbsp; Their analytical approach provides insight into other major conflicts, such as the problems of perception and misperception in U.S. - Iranian relations. In an age when terrorism and hostage-taking are regular features on the six orsquo;clock news, their questioning of traditional views on negotiation with ldquo;irrationalrdquo; adversaries is especially important.
