This is a review of six books on the topic of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR).

The six works, published between 1988 and 1990, which are reviewed include the following: Peter Lovenheim’s Mediate Don’t Litigate; Harold Paddock’s Settlement Week; Nancy Rogers and Craig McEwen’s Mediation: Law-Policy-Practice; Linda Singer’s Settling Disputes; William Ury, Jeanne Brett, and Stephen Golderg’s Getting Disputes Resolved, and John Wilkinson’s Donovan Leisure Newton and Irvine ADR Practice Book.
