Abstract:     
The author examines what he calls 'mediation's dirty little secret' - the degree to which mediators themselves routinely and unabashedly engage in manipulation and deception to foster settlements, albeit under the rationale of fostering self-determination. Sophisticated consumers have come to know and expect it. Unsophisticated consumers are not so lucky.
