[TofC cont.] Conclusions, challenging prejudice: Undoing prejudice I, lessons from the three lenses; Undoing prejudice II, empowerment. [In this book, the author uses] historical, sociological, and psychological perspectives [to] help students see a ... complete picture of prejudice.-Pref. [This book first] consider[s] the meaning of differences and how prejudice is structured around dealing with differences ... [It next] examines those efforts to understand prejudice that argue that perhaps there is something about the targeted groups that would explain why they are thought ill of and perhaps even treated differently from the rest of "us." [The book then] refocuses ... from the targeted groups to the prejudiced person, arguing that perhaps there is something about people who are prejudiced that we must examine in order to understand this troubling topic. [Next, the author] argue[s] that because prejudice is an intergroup phenomenon ... perhaps it is best to examine prejudice in terms of intergroup relations. [Finally, the book addresses] two additional issues: the consequences of prejudice ... and what to do to reduce prejudice.-Ch. 1.

Conflict and dispute pervade political and policy discussions. Moreover, unequal power relations tend to heighten levels of conflict. In this context of contention, figuring out ways to accommodate others and reach solutions that are agreeable to all is a perennial challenge for activists, politicians, planners, and policymakers. John Forester is one of America's eminent scholars of progressive planning and dispute resolution in the policy arena, and in Dealing with Differences he focuses on a series of 'hard cases'--conflicts that appeared to be insoluble yet which were resolved in the end. Forester ranges across the country--from Hawaii to Maryland to Washington State--and across issues--the environment, ethnic conflict, and HIV. Throughout, he focuses on how innovative mediators settled seemingly intractable disputes. Between pessimism masquerading as 'realism' and the unrealistic idealism that 'we can all get along,' Forester identifies the middle terrain where disputes do actually get resolved in ways that offer something for all sides. Dealing with Differences serves as an authoritative and fundamentally pragmatic pathway for anyone who has to engage in the highly contentious worlds of planning and policymaking.

The Three-Step- method refers to obstacles that impede effective communication: We are often not fully aware of the norms, values and rules that we learn during our socialization. Every individual thus sees, perceives and interprets everything around him from the limited perspective of his own norms and values, of which he is only partially aware. As a result, the individual tends to regard his own norms and values as universal. People tend to attribute their own norms, values and perceptions to other people. People fail to make their own wishes, shortcomings and limits sufficiently clear to each other and / or fail to do so early enough, because of lack of familiarity with their own and other peoples communication codes, norms and values. In intercultural communication he finds that many obstacles have their origins in the differences of norms and values between different cultures. He provides the following three steps to deal with those obstacles: **Step 1** Getting to know ones own norms, values and behavioural codes. Which rules and codes influence ones ways of thinking, acting and communicating ? **Step 2** Getting to know the norms, values and behavioural codes of the other party. In doing so, opinions about the behaviour of the other party should be separated from facts. What is the meaning behind the unusual behaviour of the other party ? **Step 3** Determining how to deal with the observed differences in norms, values and behavioural codes in the given situation. Each party should establish the extent to which he is willing to adjust to and accept the behaviour of the other party. These limits should be made clear to the other party, if possible in a timely fashion and in a way consistent with the communication codes of that party.

The need for intercultural communication has grown tremendously because cultures have become homogenized, despite the idea that globalization makes it easier to communicate. The author of "Dealing with Differences" explains the theoretical framework of defining culture as a struggle for meaning. He also analyzes and defines intercultural communication as dealing with the differences that parties involved bring to the table--how they perceive and evaluate the situation based on their own experiences and beliefs. Vink goes on to show what causes these differences and concludes with an overview of practical ways to improve people's ability to communicate among cultures. This book will help readers cope effectively with cultural differences of all kind, in a world that emphasizes differences while equalizing behavior and lifestyle.

Conflict is something inevitable. It is an integral part of our lives. Normally we work in groups and while working, we relate with our superiors, peers and juniors. While relating, more often than not, conflicting situations arise which take toll on our precious time and energy. Therefore, understanding and management of conflict become very important. This book deals with different conceptual aspects of conflict and its effective management. The most popular and effective style of resolving conflict is through dialogue, which is popularly known as negotiation. Through negotiation people deal with differences, which they do, consciously or unconsciously, throughout their lives. The part of the book dealing with negotiation takes care of the details about different aspects of negotiation – strategies, preparation, processes and multicultural and ethical dimensions related to it. The book contains live cases, which will provide useful insight on the theoretical and conceptual aspects to the students. The book will go a long way in meeting with the requirements of the management students by providing consolidated material on the subject.
