While most studies in negotiation and conflict management have focused on cognitive aspects, few have addressed the impact of social processes and contexts on the negotiation process. Addressing this need, Roderick M Kramer and David M Messick have brought together original theory and research from leading scholars in this emerging field. A wide range of topics is covered including: the role of group identification and accountability on negotiator judgement and decision making; the importance of power-dependence relations on negotiation; intergroup bargaining; coalitional dynamics in bargaining; social influence processes in negotiation; cross-cultural perspectives of negotiation; and the impact of social relationships on n

This Handbook combines a review of negotiation research with state-of-the-art commentary on the future of negotiation theory and research. Leading international scholars give insight into both the factors known to shape negotiation and the questions that we need to answer as we strive to deepen our understanding of the negotiation process. This Handbook provides analyses of the negotiation process from four distinct perspectives: negotiators' cognition and emotion, social processes and social inferences, communication processes, and complex negotiations, covering trade, peace, environment, and crisis negotiations. Providing an introduction to key topics in negotiation, written by leading researchers in the field, the book will prove insightful for undergraduate students. It also incorporates an excellent summary of past research as well as highlights new directions negotiation research might take which will be valuable for postgraduate students and academics wishing to expand their knowledge on the subject.

In the global marketplace, negotiation frequently takes place across cultural boundaries, yet negotiation theory has traditionally been grounded in Western culture. This book, which provides an in-depth review of the field of negotiation theory, expands current thinking to include cross-cultural perspectives. The contents of the book reflect the diversity of negotiation—research-negotiator cognition, motivation, emotion, communication, power and disputing, intergroup relationships, third parties, justice, technology, and social dilemmas—and provides new insight into negotiation theory, questioning assumptions, expanding constructs, and identifying limits not apparent from working exclusively within one culture. The book is organized in three sections and pairs chapters on negotiation theory with chapters on culture. The first part emphasizes psychological processes—cognition, motivation, and emotion. Part II examines the negotiation process. The third part emphasizes the social context of negotiation. A final chapter synthesizes the main themes of the book to illustrate how scholars and practitioners can capitalize on the synergy between culture and negotiation research.

The text then examines the issue components of bargaining structure and bargainers as individuals, including individual differences in personality and background, interpersonal orientation, issue incentive magnitude and reward structure, and intangible issues in bargaining.

Our model explores all of our human dimensions in the cognitive, psychological, social, physical and spiritual fields. Quantum Negotiators have a strong sense of self, identity, and are anchored to their own values. However, Quantum Negotiators also have the curiosity, the resilience and the intelligence to understand another's point of view and interests"--
