This book beautifully describes the social construction of imagined futures, inviting us, as scholar-practitioners, to move beyond ‘problem solving’ and its ethic of ‘neutrality,’ towards Appreciative Inquiry, and its ethics of narrative, voice, and meaning-making, relying on the heart-wisdom that flourishes in the context of affirmation

This book powerfully delivers what it promises — a provocation to think more deeply about how we conduct our peacemaking and peacebuilding relationships. A must read for those who dare to make a difference.

"This book beautifully describes the social construction of imagined futures, inviting us, as scholar-practitioners, to move beyond ‘problem solving’ and its ethic of ‘neutrality,’ towards Appreciative Inquiry, and its ethics of narrative, voice, and meaning-making, relying on the heart-wisdom that flourishes in the context of affirmation." — Dr. Sara Cobb, Institute for Conflict Analysis and Resolution, George Mason University

"This book powerfully delivers what it promises—a provocation to think more deeply about how we conduct our peacemaking and peacebuilding relationships. At a minimum, it dissatisfies us with our inabilities to ask questions that change relationships. At a maximum, it challenges us to ask whether we could not work differently altogether. For those who dare to read, the impact will last a lifetime." — Dr. Harold H. Saunders, International Institute

 "This book presents an innovative perspective on peacebuilding that breaks new ground while maintaining strong roots and relationships in tradition." — Ambassador John McDonald, Institute for Multi-Track Diplomacy
