The War Next Door is based on participative field research in Serbia, Croatia, Eastern Slavonia and Bosnia between 1992 and l996. Based on practical experiences, interviews, personal testimony, and analysis, it addresses the impact of second track interventions. Particular emphasis is placed on local strategies for preventing the escalation of violence; building a capacity for peace amid a structure conducive to war; the transition from new social movements to NGO formations; tensions between the "therapeutic" and "direct action" approaches to conflict resolution; and dilemmas in training and engagement, such as the "facilitation versus empowerment" debate.

Includes illustrations, cartoons, poems, photos, maps, diagrams, and an extensive bibliography.
