Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This comprehensive text will be an invaluable resource not only for the practitioner and researcher practicing in all segments of public health but also for the academician preparing our future health educators. The rich experience of the author of more than 15 years of building, leading, evaluating, and consulting on coalitions and partnerships is evident as she combines her practical experience and insights with the published sources to make her points. . . . This book achieves the stated goal of being a one-stop shop that provides not only a philosophical and theoretical basis but also practical guidance and tools on how to develop and sustain successful partnerships and coalitions."— Health Promotion Practice, April 2008
