The Third Side : According to William Ury, it takes two sides to fight, but a third to stop. Distilling the lessons of two decades of experience in family struggles, labor strikes, and wars, he presents a bold new strategy for stopping fights. He describes ten practical roles - as managers, teachers, parents, and citizens - that each of us can play every day to prevent destructive conflict. Fighting isn't an inevitable part of human nature. We have a powerful alternative - the Third Side - which can transform our daily battles into creative conflict and cooperation at home, at work, at school, and in the world.
