Why We Fight offers new insights into these timeless issues. I find it extremely useful as I deal with business opportunities and challenges daily throughout Europe where history and culture play such tremendous roles in the way business is done in each country. It is a remarkable book that is very well written. I highly recommend it to anyone involved in international business. -- John J. Harris, Chief Executive, Nestle Purina PetCare, Europe This book by D.A. Churchman is perhaps the ultimate multidisciplinary view of conflict at every level from the family to the family of nations. It is a must for anyone interested in knowing more about the sources of conflict, its essence, and the ways to deal with it. -- Volodymyr Dubovyk, Odessa National University, Ukraine The suggested criteria presented in this study...should be engaged with by all of us who research and write in the field of conflict studies. -- Oliver Richmond, Saint Andrews University, Scotland
