Contrasts two approaches to conflicts and their resolution: the aggressive, confrontative elements of the adversary paradigm represented by the fictional figure Rambo, and the compassionate non-violence of the mutuality paradigm advocated by the Dalai Lama.

Book News
Analyzes the assumption that human life is based on conflicts of interest, wars, and the opposition of people to each other and to nature as an adversary paradigm that supplies meaning and orientation to the world. An alternative paradigm suggests cooperation, caring, nurturing, and loving as equally viable ways of organizing relationships of humans to each other and to nature. The author asserts that a shifting emphasis from adversarialism to mutuality is essential to the survival of the human species. Foreword by the Dalai Lama. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
