Collaboration: A Selected Bibliography



(Very Important Note: For those that understand Language Deception -- also known by various other titles, from ‘stalking horse’ to ‘Hegelian Dialectic’ to systems theory to ‘conflict resolution’, and many more -- such change agents as pen such things as collaboration documents do so with the knowledge that few people will realize their emotions are being targeted, their intellect, paralyzed. Here’s how it is used below: The word “collaboration” is used 160 times in this 43-page document. The word “collaborative” or variations of it are used 59 times. “Cooperation” is used 22 times. “Cooperative” is used 5 times. “Change” or its variations is used 30 times. “Coordination” is used 5 times. “Voluntary” is used 16 times. “Environment” or its variations is used 12 times. “Conservation” is employed just twice. “Community” or its variations are used 136 times. All right; now you know that your emotions are being used as a means to achieve an end, an agenda, a plan. Please use your intellects to discover how large the scope and how pervasive are the tentacles. It is good to keep in mind Hosea 4:6: “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.”)




Annual Conference 2003


Dallas, Texas


Council on Foundations (COF)







We are delighted to provide attendees to the Council on Foundations 2003 Annual Conference with this compilation of references on collaboration in the nonprofit sector made possible by the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation.


The bibliography was compiled from a call for resources sent to the 2003 Annual Conference Planning Committee, the dozens of individuals who designed sessions for the conference, and the 38 affinity groups associated with the Council on Foundations.


While extensive, this bibliography is by no means exhaustive.


Every reference received was included in the bibliography if the bibliographic information could be verified.


The resulting selections are those that, in the judgments of the contributors, provide useful information for  grantmakers.


Certainly more materials exist on the topic and we hope that you, as a user, will add your favorites to this collection.


The individuals and institutions listed below provided significant numbers of references.


We particularly acknowledge their efforts on behalf of their colleagues, as well as the Council on Foundations Resource Center staff, for compiling, verifying and designing this bibliography.
