Reading Recommendations

CPS has compiled a list of books, chapters and interviews that express partnership principles and values. Topics range from peace, cultural evolution, history, gender, leadership, the power of partnership, and children’s/young adult’s literature.

This list will be updated periodically. If you have a partnership-based book in mind that is a good fit for this resource library, please contact CPS with your recommendation, and we will consider adding it to this page.
