    "Cooperative activity, whether as teamwork, collaboration, or computer-supported collaborative work, has emerged as a central issue in contemporary human factors....In this book, McNeese, Salas, and Endsley have brought together, in one source, an extraordinary collection of thought leaders who review and extend the present state of knowledge on the dynamics that underlie cooperative activities for a variety of task domains. Collectively, this volume offers new insights regarding the nature of information, cognition, learning, problem solving, mental representation, and situational awareness pertinent to the design of cooperative work environments....This volume will indeed be a useful resource to students, scholars, researchers, and practitioners in the human factors community."--Kenneth R. Boff
