Wikipedia, the online encyclopedia, is built by a community -- a community of Wikipedians who are expected to "assume good faith" when interacting with one another. In Good Faith Collaboration, Joseph Reagle examines this unique collaborative culture. Wikipedia, says Reagle, is not the first effort to create a freely shared, universal encyclopedia; its early twentieth-century ancestors include Paul Otlet's Universal Repository and H. G. Wells's proposal for a World Brain. Both these projects, like Wikipedia, were fuelled by new technology -- which at the time included index cards and microfilm. What distinguishes Wikipedia from these and other more recent ventures is Wikipedia's good-faith collaborative culture, as seen not only in the writing and editing of articles but also in their discussion pages and edit histories. Keeping an open perspective on both knowledge claims and other contributors, Reagle argues, creates an extraordinary collaborative potential. Wikipedia's style of collaborative production has been imitated, analyzed, and satirized. Despite the social unease over its implications for individual autonomy, institutional authority, and the character (and quality) of cultural products, Wikipedia's good-faith collaborative culture has brought us closer than ever to a realization of the century-old pursuit of a universal encyclopedia.

Pratt, the first coordinator of the Taskforce on the Churches and Corporate Responsibility--one of Canada's leading anti-apartheid advocates for nearly 20 years--picks up where her previous book, "Investment in Oppression" (1973) left off, and continues through the end of apartheid.

"The Internet has enabled new forms of large-scale collaboration. Voluntary contributions by large numbers of users and co-producers lead to new forms of production and innovation, as seen in Wikipedia, open source software development, in social networks or on user-generated content platforms as well as in many firm-driven Web 2.0 services. Large-scale collaboration on the Internet is an intriguing phenomenon for scholarly debate because it challenges well established insights into the governance of economic action, the sources of innovation, the possibilities of collective action and the social, legal and technical preconditions for successful collaboration. Although contributions to the debate from various disciplines and fine-grained empirical studies already exist, there still is a lack of an interdisciplinary approach"--Publisher's description.

The growth of faith-based schools, particularly within Muslim communities, has signalled a clear change in direction as a number of religious groups have begun to question the efficacy of 'secular' schooling for all. But why is it that some faith-based schools are regarded as different from others? What makes Muslim and Sikh schools, for example, different from those classified as Anglican, Catholic or Jewish? At the heart of the debate is the question of segregation in terms of race and ethnicity.This unique book draws on first-hand research to explore these issues and the concerns that the expansion of new faith-based schools will prove to be socially divisive, encourage 'fundamentalism', and incite religious and ethnic tensions. Lord Dearing contributes the Foreword.

This publication focuses on the conditions for promising collaboration. Collaboration is becoming a dominant instrument in today's economy and society and manifests itself in many shapes and forms. It is a challenging instrument which still isn't very well understood and poses the business community in front of a number of challenging dilemma's. We position collaboration as a multidisciplinary phenomenon and - based on years of research and as reflective practitioners - offer a comprehensive model for analyzing and designing collaborative processes that is both scientifically rooted and applicable in practice. A better understanding of collaborative processes will enhance the success of alliances, networks, chains and strategic partnerships. In addition to this we look to the future of organizing from a collaborative perspective and address the challenges ahead.

Das Buchereignis 2018: Bill Clinton und James Pattersons »The President Is Missing« ist ein hochspannender Thriller über Ereignisse, die wirklich so eintreffen können – eine Geschichte am Puls der Zeit, die man sich auf keinen Fall entgehen lassen darf. »The President Is Missing« handelt von einer Bedrohung so gigantischen Ausmaßes, dass sie nicht nur das Weiße Haus und die Wall Street in Aufruhr versetzt, sondern ganz Amerika. Angst und Ungewissheit halten die Nation in ihrem Würgegriff. Gerüchte brodeln – über Cyberterror und Spionage und einen Verräter im Kabinett. Sogar der Präsident selbst gerät unter Verdacht und ist plötzlich von der Bildfläche verschwunden. In der packenden Schilderung dreier atemberaubend dramatischer Tage wirft »The President Is Missing« ein Schlaglicht auf die komplizierten Mechanismen, die für das reibungslose Funktionieren einer hoch entwickelten Industrienation wie Amerika sorgen, und ihre Störanfälligkeit. Gespickt mit Informationen, über die nur ein ehemaliger Oberbefehlshaber verfügt, ist dies wohl der authentischste, beklemmendste Roman jüngerer Zeit, eine Geschichte – von historischer Tragweite und zum richtigen Moment erzählt –, die noch jahrelang für Zündstoff sorgen wird.
