This work compares studies of partnerships that involve business, arts, science, and community organizations as they work with educational institutions on a worldwide scale. The book is unique in that it suggests the options available to newer American partnerships if they will use the experience of European countries. The literature on partnership is linked to the study of marginality. The work includes links with a number of new directions including religion and higher education that can assist the continuation of partnership and their examination of new issues.
