"Crossing Boundaries shifts the level of the debate by offering engaging and real challenges to those who both research and promote multi-disciplinary work." -John Diamond, Edge Hill University, UK "This book fills a gap in boundary-spanning collaboration in the public sector. It consolidates and integrates current theory and practice from leading scholarly thought and countless practitioner experiences. Then it translates lessons learned from action research into new insights on good practice. The book reaches out to academics, students, and practitioners alike who study and practice collaborative leadership." - John Wilkins, York University, Canada
