The Third Side
by William Ury
Why We Fight, and How We Can Stop
‘According to William Ury, it takes two sides to fight,
but a third to stop. Distilling the lessons of two decades
of experience in family struggles, labor strikes, and wars,
he presents a bold new strategy for stopping fights. He describes
ten practical roles-as managers, teachers, parents, and citizens-that
each of us can play every day to prevent destructive conflict.
Fighting isn’t an inevitable part of human nature,
Ury explains, drawing on his work among “primitive”
tribes and modern-day corporations. We have a powerful alternative-
the Third Side-which can transform our daily battles into
creative and cooperation at home, at work, at school, and
in the world.’
“William Ury is our best-read, most
influential voice on human conflict. Anyone wishing to live
peacefully, or to live at all, must read this well-researched,
lucidly written treatise. No one will doubt its importance,
indeed its urgency.”
- John Kenneth Galbraith
