Elisabeth S. Clemens, Administrative Science Quarterly Kornberger dives more deeply into the foundational assumptions and epistemologies of different theoretical traditions, reanimating long familiar arguments for seasoned readers and inviting graduate students to engage critically with classic texts and novel social phenomena. Each wave of theorizing about organization was grounded in the experience of specific episodes of sweeping social change or organizational innovation.

Geoff Mulgan, Collective Intelligence It covers examples ranging from responses to COVID-19 to the refugee crisis and provides a sophisticated theoretical overview of the roles of markets and crowds, movements and teams, fusing philosophy and social science. At its core are examples that show how traditional models of collective organization (markets, hierarchies, organisations) are now being complemented by new methods enabled by digital networks.

Professor Sir Geoff Mulgan, UCL A fascinating look at new models of distributed collective action. It's rich in philosophical reflection and thoughtful observation of recent phenomena, from the refugee crisis to COVID, and links these to a sophisticated theoretical understanding of markets and crowds, movements and teams. I've no doubt that the territory which it covers will be part of the common sense of the near future and that this book provides vital insights into how intelligence can be orchestrated at larger scales.

Barbara Czarniawska, Senior Professor of Management Studies, FBA It seems that the world is in the permanent state of crisis; how can collective actions be organized in such a state? By investing in openness, polycentricity, and plurality, answers Martin Kornberger in his book that offers a deeply impressive combination of philosophy, old and new organization theory, political economy, and sociological reflection. I can imagine both Mary Parker Follett and Albert Hirschman applauding! This is a text that ought to be read by students of all social sciences, and of humanities as well.

Woody Powell, Stanford University This book brims with fresh ideas for understanding collective action and deftly recombines older, received modes of thought. Kornberger is an exciting thinker, and a hopeful one, too. Both are in short supply at the moment; this most welcome book will lift minds and spirits.

Jerry Davis, Gilbert & Ruth Whitaker Professor of Management and Professor of Sociology, Ross School of Business, University of Michigan How do collectives get things done? For generations we have looked to markets, hierarchies, institutions, and movements to explain collective action, but today new forms are emerging in surprising places, often enabled by new technologies. In this lively and delightfully readable book, Martin Kornberger inventories existing forms and provides a vocabulary for thinking about and designing new methods of coordination that can help guide our emerging future.
