Essentials of Negotiation explores the major concepts and theories of the psychology of bargaining and negotiation, and the dynamics of interpersonal and inter-group conflict and its resolution in a succinct format. For users of the US (comprehensive) text, 11 of the 20 chapters have been included here. Chapters are shortened by removing more "academic" material and some of the boxes. This effectively leaves the message and theories of negotiation intact. This lends itself to the Essentials text as it is a more concise version of the main text.
