“One of the most important books of our modern era” –Amb. Jaime de Bourbon For anyone struggling with conflict, this book can transform you. Negotiating the Nonnegotiable takes you on a journey into the heart and soul of conflict, providing unique insight into the emotional undercurrents that too often sweep us out to sea. With vivid stories of his closed-door sessions with warring political groups, disputing businesspeople, and families in crisis, Daniel Shapiro presents a universally applicable method to successfully navigate conflict. A deep, provocative book to reflect on and wrestle with, this book can change your life. Be warned: This book is not a quick fix. Real change takes work. You will learn how to master five emotional dynamics that can sabotage conflict outside your awareness: 1. Vertigo: How can you avoid getting emotionally consumed in conflict? 2. Repetition compulsion: How can you stop repeating the same conflicts again and again? 3. Taboos: How can you discuss sensitive issues at the heart of the conflict? 4. Assault on the sacred: What should you do if your values feel threatened? 5. Identity politics: What can you do if others use politics against you? In our era of discontent, this is just the book we need to resolve conflict in our own lives and in the world around us.

Learn How to Resolve Your Most Emotionally Charged Conflicts Conflicts in relationships are a part of human nature. Everyone is a unique individual with different opinions, values, and morals. It’s no surprise that conflicts arise in friendships, romantic relationships, and even in international relations. When you struggle with conflict in relationships, you may find just how difficult it is to get past them. No matter how hard you try to see another view or explain your own perspective, it’s difficult to come to a mutual understanding. So how can you resolve these emotionally charged differences? Harvard negotiation expert Daniel Shapiro has created a groundbreaking method to bridge the toughest divides. He introduces that the root of each problem is identity. The hidden power of identity fuels conflict, whether it’s with family members, colleagues, or even with world politics. As you read, you’ll learn how to identify the root of conflicts, how the Tribes Effect causes problems in relationships, and you'll learn the necessary steps to begin mending relationships today.

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 The world is becoming more and more tribal. We feel a kinship with the tribe to which we belong, and we emotionally invest in it. This means that we can become emotionally attached to religious groups, nations, and even multinational corporations. #2 The professor conducted an exercise where participants were divided into six tribes and asked to come up with the most important tribal values. Some spent nearly thirty minutes on it, while others were terrified by an alien that came to destroy the Earth if they didn’t choose one tribe. #3 The lights came back on, and everyone looked around, bewildered. There were a few chuckles, and then the participants sprang into action, huddling at their tables to define their strategy for the upcoming negotiations. #4 The world has exploded so many times in the past that participants lose sight of their goal of saving the world for the sake of an identity crafted in just fifty minutes.

Unconditional Equality examines Mahatma Gandhi’s critique of liberal ideas of freedom and equality and his own practice of a freedom and equality organized around religion. It reconceives satyagraha (passive resistance) as a politics that strives for the absolute equality of all beings. Liberal traditions usually affirm an abstract equality centered on some form of autonomy, the Kantian term for the everyday sovereignty that rational beings exercise by granting themselves universal law. But for Gandhi, such equality is an “equality of sword”—profoundly violent not only because it excludes those presumed to lack reason (such as animals or the colonized) but also because those included lose the power to love (which requires the surrender of autonomy or, more broadly, sovereignty). Gandhi professes instead a politics organized around dharma, or religion. For him, there can be “no politics without religion.” This religion involves self-surrender, a freely offered surrender of autonomy and everyday sovereignty. For Gandhi, the “religion that stays in all religions” is satyagraha—the agraha (insistence) on or of satya (being or truth). Ajay Skaria argues that, conceptually, satyagraha insists on equality without exception of all humans, animals, and things. This cannot be understood in terms of sovereignty: it must be an equality of the minor.
