Record numbers of Americans fear that our political process is broken--for good reason. Our nation faces unprecedented challenges, yet our politicians spend most of their energy attacking one another. All the while, no one in public life has offered a practical way to neutralize the bitter partisanship that paralyzes Washington. The Cure for Our Broken Political Process fills that void. The authors show exactly how concerned citizens can get politicians from all camps to negotiate genuine solutions to the most vexing issues. Sol Erdman and Lawrence Susskind base their case on their thirty years of experience in resolving political conflict. The Cure begins with hard evidence that our country could work out practical solutions to nearly every major issue that now divides us, solutions that all sides could support. Why, then, don’t our politicians seek out those solutions? The authors debunk all the accepted explanations and then uncover the real reason. By telling the story of a concerned citizen who runs for Congress, the book shows that two basic features of our elections virtually compel politicians to bicker endlessly over major problems. So, as long as our elections work as they do today, our lawmakers will keep on fighting, leaving the critical issues unresolved. The authors then spell out how to redesign elections so that politicians would win only if they produced useful results--only if they negotiated practical solutions to pressing problems. The book concludes with a step-by-step plan proving that ordinary citizens have the power to bring about these changes. To anyone who fears that our country’s future is in peril, The Cure offers a realistic path to a political process they can genuinely believe in.

The articles selected for this volume draw on game theory, political science, psychology, sociology and anthropology to consider how the process of dispute resolution is altered, challenged and made more complex by the presence of multiple parties and/or multiple issues. The volume explores issues of coalition formation, defection, collaboration, commitments, voting practices, and joint decision making in settings of increasing human complexity. Also included are examples of concrete uses of deliberative democracy processes taken from new applications of complex dispute resolution theory and practice. The selected essays represent the latest theoretical advances and challenges in the field and demonstrate attempts to use dispute resolution theory in a wide variety of settings such as political decision making and policy formation; regulatory matters; environmental disputes; healthcare; community disputes; constitutional formation; and in many other controversial issues in the polity.

حدث ذات يوم أن أفادنى رجال فرق القمصان السوداء فى إيمولا بأن سيفا سيهدى إلي منقوشا عليها قول مكيافيللى «ليست المحافظة على الدول بالكلام» وكان أن وضع حد لترددى وتحدد اختيار موضوع الرسالة الذى أقدمه اليوم لتقترعوا عليه. وبإمكانى تسميته «تعليق عام 1924 على كتاب الأمير لمكيافيللى» . وذلك الكتاب الذى أود أن أطلق عليه «ملازم رجل الحكم» يقتضى للأمانة الفكرية أن أذكر أن مراجع رسالتى هذه قليلة، كما سنرى فيما بعد. لقد قرأت كتاب «الأمير» وغيره من مؤلفات ذلك (الأمين العظيم) قراءة واعية ولكن الوقت والإرادة حالا دون أن أقرأ جميع ما كتب عن مكيافيللى فى إيطاليا وفى العالم. وأردت أن أضع بينى وبينه أقل عدد من الوسطاء القدامى أو المحدثين، الإيطاليين والأجانب، كى لا أفسد عملية الاتصال المباشر بين مذهبه وحياتى التى عشتها وبين ما لاحظ ولاحظت عن البشر والأشياء وبين ممارسته للحكم وممارستى.

إنّ كتاب اللوياثان الذي وضعه (سنة 1651)، من الكتب المؤسِّسة لنظرية الفلسفة، وهو يبتكر أسطورة السلطة المطلقة فيضع ركائز التقليد السياسي الحديث.. فقد قرّر البشر، استناداً إلى قُدرتهم الخاصّة على العزم والتفكير، أن يُزوّدوا أنفُسَهُم بقانون مُشترَك ومُصطَنَع، وعندها لم يعد القانون يرتكز على العالم الإلهي، بل على العالم الإنساني. واللفياثان هو كائن بحري خرافي له رأس تنين وجسد وأفعى ويرد ذكره مرات عدة في الكتاب المقدس، أما هوبز فيستعمله ليصور سلطة الحاكم أو الدولة التي يستبدل بها الناس ضمن عقد اجتماعي جديد سلطة الدين أو اللاهوت.
