Effective Legal Negotiation and Settlement explores various negotiation stages, emphasizes the importance of verbal and nonverbal communication, and discusses the different bargaining techniques negotiators are likely to encounter. The Seventh Edition also explores the impact of negotiations involving persons from diverse backgrounds or of different genders.
