Co-operatives and the Social Question: The Co-operative Movement in Northern and Eastern Europe (1880-1950)

£29.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

First edition, published in 2012 by Welsh Academic Press. Includes several photographs and a useful and extensive index.

'While co-operative ideas had been discussed in all the Nordic countries from at least the 1860s, it was not until the 1880s that the first permanent organisations appeared. Published in 2012 to mark the UN International Year of the Co-operative, this ground breaking volume examines the development of the co-operative movement in the Nordic countries and in eastern Europe.
It presents a unique comparative transnational perspective on the spread and development of co-operative ideas in these regions and the links between them. The book offers a new perspective on late 19th- and early 20th-century debates on the social question, modernisation, and the foundations of the welfare state. It is a wide-ranging history, ranging from the urban consumer co-operative societies of Sweden to the peasant organisations of Hungary and Galicia. It provides an overview of the growth of co-operatives in those nations, but also traces the regional transnational spread of co-operative ideas and practices, as well as the importance of the moral and modernising aims of co-operation.
After reading the book, one becomes more aware of the conflicts of interest, politics and ideology (or ideals) which have influenced both the emergence of early European co-operatives and their frequent affiliations to (or co-operation by) groups with differing political, nationalist, religious, economic and social aspiration. n

There are some under-linings in the early part of the book and an inscription in the front reading: Steve Yeo, Jan 2013, (for COOP News).

In a nice clean condition with very little sign of wear and sound binding.
