Manning, G., Curtis K., & McMillen S. (1995).  Building Community: The Human Side of Work.
Group relationships satisfy social needs for belonging. Scott Peck explains that the members of a group who have achieved genuine community take pleasure—even delight—in knowing they have done something together, that they have collectively discovered something of great value, that they are "onto something" as a family There is nothing competitive about the spirit of true community. To the contrary; a group possessed by a spirit of internal competitiveness—member against member—is, by definition, not a community. Competitiveness breeds exclusivity; genuine community is inclusive, meeting a basic need for belonging. (p. 285)
Dobson, M. S., & Dobson D. S. (2000).  Managing Up! : 59 Ways to Build a Career-Advancing Relationship with Your Boss.
"The use of clubs, sports, and other special interests is a traditional way for the 'old boy network' to exclude others. If exclusive clubs were simply about some people who wanted to play golf or tennis together or have a drink with friends, few would care. But they're not—or at least they're not about that alone. They're about who gets to be part of the informal networking that shapes a significant amount of access to the higher socioeconomic reaches of American life." (p. 168)
