This book addresses the issue of crisis management using conflict perspective as a theoretical framework. In the process, attempt was made to examine the concepts of "conflict" "crisis" and "crisis management" as well as the role of third party intervention/mediation in a crisis. As a point of departure, the concept of theory was examined as the necessary basis for observational consideration of phenomena (e.g. crisis, conflicts, and violence) that are germane to friction-free human existence. Within this context, the affinity between theory and practice was examined in the context of real life relationship among Theorists, Academics, Policy Makers and other Practitioners. Relevant examples across the world (where applicable) were cited. What governments and their military/security advisers should do to effectively handle crisis situations was stressed. We concluded that the need for unbiased and mutually beneficial crisis resolution must not be taken for granted. We equally contended that a friction-free governance and peaceful existence is possible in spite of the fact that human society will continue to be characterized by conflicts and multiplicity of interests.
