Promotional Information

This is a terrific book that is long overdue in so many ways. It offers up a definition of collaborative that explicitly recognizes the 'network' criteria, which draws our attention to the sustainability question. Its focus on the 7 Cs is a good, powerful way to pull together the complicated dynamics of collaboratives in an understandable manner for scholars and practitioners. And it does an excellent job offering up practical lessons for public and private stakeholders to apply. -- Edward Weber, Director and Professor, School of Environmental Studies, University of Nevada, Las Vegas; author of Bringing Society Back In This book will be an invaluable reference for anyone who seeks practical ways to resolve complex and controversial resource management issues. Building on a wide range of case study research, it offers frameworks for understanding the options and strategies for establishing and implementing collaborative management projects. -- Judith E. Innes, Professor of City and Regional Planning, University of California, Berkeley At last a treatment of this topic that goes beyond kum-ba-ya declarations about the sanctity of consensus and instead rigorously analyzes the process and outcomes of collaborative planning at various scales. Beyond Consensus will be an indispensible resource for anyone concerned with using collaboration to achieve results. Superbly evidenced with more than forty detailed case studies across two continents, the book shows how collaborative environmental planning can be used to combat environmental degradation in complex, interjurisdictional circumstances. A significant achievement. -- Marcus Lane, Research Program Leader, Social and Economic Sciences Program, and Chair, CSIRO Social Science Human Research Ethics Committee, CSIRO Ecosystem Sciences
