"John Paul Lederach, a theorist of great insight who also happens to be a practitioner of high skill, brings us deep into his own process of learning . . . "
So said the well-known author William Ury

In The Moral Imagination I learned to look for the important web of relationships that lies hidden behind the violence of a conflict. Such webs contain spaces that may become starting places for reconciliation. Even before violence abates, in such spaces a peace-builder can get started.

A skilled and engaging storyteller, Mr. Lederach offers instances from his own experience to illustrate the theories he lays out. For example, he tells how mothers, wives, and daughters built peace in a formerly violent marketplace where all parties needed to shop for necessities.

In the arena of workplace reconciliation where I work, Mr. Lederach has helped me assign meaning to much I have observed but not always recognized as important.

Excellent book! Organizations/schools are increasing using as core literature, and has become common reference for my work in peacebuilding.

I would also recommend for anyone... easy to understand and follow for people without any background in conflict resolution. For anyone studying or working in conflict resolution or peacebuilding, however, The Moral Imagination is a must read!

I am currently getting my Masters degree in International Peace, Conflict, and Development Studies, and this book has served as a text book in almost all my courses. It's easy to read, but not lacking in depth. John Paul Lederach has a way of writing that truly moves and inspires his readers. This is definitely my favorite of his works. I recommend it to anyone who is interested in peace making and conflict transformation.

I am only half way through right now. But this book is really helping me to see the heart of conflict resolution and peace building.

I am naturally a very emotional person, but all during my undergrad I had to put on a very serious/fact finding hat to get through. Now during my graduate studies of Peace and Conflict Resolution I was having a hard time adjusting. Words like "love", "harmony", and "imagination" were really throwing me off.

I am reading this book for my class and it is really helping me to put my heart and imagination into what I am learning which is helping me to internalize what I am learning. After all, I believe that to want to resolve the conflict of others, you have to have a little love and imagination in your heart.

This book puts the heart back into peace building. It reminds us that it is ok to use your heart and intuition in your work. Everything is not always about technical methods and theories.

A hooked reader.

This book will change your perspective on conflict, how it forms, how it can be managed, and how it can be resolved. The author is realistic, understands the effect of cultural context, and the curative principal of respect in relationships. I learned a lot.

Amazing book! Had to read it for a Master's class and I want everyone to read it. It gives a broad perspective of the world's struggles for peace among violence and provides hope for change in a myriad of ways.

ok
This book boils conflict resolution down to The Moral Imagination, without simplifying the complex field. It brings art to a technical field.
