Dignity: Its Essential Role in Resolving Conflict (Tenth Anniversary)
A noted conflict-resolution expert explores dignity, its role in human conflict, and its power to improve relationships

"This book is a must read for those who want to experience peace in their everyday lives and peace in the world around them. . . . If you want peace, be sure everyone's dignity is intact."--Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu

"Anyone who understands the importance of personal feelings and their fuel for conflict should consider Dignity as a powerful advisory and motivational guide."--Midwest Book Review

Drawing on her extensive experience in international conflict resolution and on insights from evolutionary biology, psychology, and neuroscience, Donna Hicks explains what the elements of dignity are, how to recognize dignity violations, how to respond when we are not treated with dignity, how dignity can restore a broken relationship, why leaders must understand the concept of dignity, and more. By choosing dignity as a way of life, Hicks shows, we open the way to greater peace within ourselves and to a safer and more humane world for all.

For the Tenth Anniversary Edition of Dignity, Hicks has written a new preface that reflects on her experience helping communities and individuals understand the power of dignity and how it can lead to a more peaceful world.
