This collection of papers represents a significant step towards a more processual approach to the study of multi-organizational arrangements such as alliances andnetworks. With exiting new concepts such as collaborative capacity and network learning, it adds much to our knowledge on how these arrangements function.'? Jorg Sydow, Free University of Berlin, Germany and Advanced Institute of ManagementResearch, UK 'Gossling, Oerlemans, and Jansen provide a nice addition to the burgeoning literature on organizational networks. In particular, their books focus on network processes; mostnotably, control, learning and failure, is a welcome addition to the more traditional structural literature on multi-organizational relationships. It should be read by all serious students of partnerships and networks.'? Keith G. Provan, University of Arizona, US'No organization is an isolated island. All organizations are connected to others through various collaborations, alliances and networks. While research into these forms of connectivity has been increasing markedly in recent years much of it remains surprisingly static, structural and statistical in orientation. Inside Networks breaks with this tradition topresent research that is processual, qualitative and focused on the nature of the interactions that constitute these innovative collaborations, alliances and networks.'?
