Abstract

In this book, the authors trace the development of The Co-operative Group and its predecessor, the Co-operative Wholesale Society (CWS), over the course of 150 years. Sam MacAulay finds a fascinating account of the historical conditions that gave rise to cooperatives, shedding light on the ups, downs and the often brutal political struggle to legitimise a new organizational form.
