The hidden alternative

Co-operative values, past, present and future

Anthony Webster, Alyson Brown, David Stewart, Linda Shaw, and John K. Walton

Published by Manchester University Press

  • Publication to coincide with the United Nations Year of Co-operatives 2012
  • Will be attractive not only to students (undergraduate and postgraduate) and academics but to policy makers and co-operators, especially in the light of current political concerns to explore alternative models to the conventional public and private sectors
  • In the light of the recent global economic recession this publication seeks to challenge the hegemony of the investor led business model in economics and business studies, and needs to be promoted in relation to these debates
  • No real direct competitor volume, but provides an opportunity to draw attention to previous MUP books on Co-operative history
  • Chapters explore a broad range of issues and subjects, historical and contemporary, all written by prominent academics
