Editorial Reviews

Ric Richardson
"This book is one of a kind. Dukes, Firehock, and Birkhoff have for the past decade been leading researchers in community collaboration, and this book represents the culmination of their work. Standing apart from other publications that address consensus building, resolving environmental and land disputes, or mediating resource conservation conflicts, Community-Based Collaboration focuses on the U.S. experience with collective management of water and land resources. The book provides new knowledge and insights that will be indispensable to all scholars and practitioners in the field."
Tamra Pearson d'Estrée
Though field-based collaborations have been evolving for many years, this thoughtful volume finally brings together all the pieces needed to understand how CBCs work, why they work, and what may get in their way. Community-Based Collaboration is a seminal book that should be considered a ‘must-have’ for those investigating collaboration, especially collaboration that is not just decision-making, but also collecting and applying knowledge. A roadmap to usher in an era of cooperative and participatory research and practice, the volume’s chapters are thorough, well-written, refreshingly complementary and well-integrated.
