Dialogue Sustained: The Multilevel Peace Process and the Dartmouth Conference


Full Description

Drawing on extensive research and interviews, James Voorhees describes the history and evolution of the Dartmouth Conference, a unique peacemaking venture, throughout its first 40 years. The Dartmouth meetings were designed to give private citizens in the Soviet Union and the United States a role to play in lessening tensions between the two nations. The book adds a new perspective on the Cold War and traces the development of a unique multilevel peace process known as sustained dialogue.
