New book by Dr. Rita Rhodes: http://www.thenews.coop/node/11091
“Empire and Co-operation”
Referring to the book, Mike Perry, Head of Communications at Plunkett Foundation said: “Empire and Co-operation is an important new contribution to the historical understanding of co-operative development.
He added: “Dr Rita Rhodes has plugged a significant gap in the co-operative movement’s understanding of how co-operatives were developed in the time of the British Empire. It sheds light on the important role of key individuals including Horace Plunkett, Henry Wollf and Earl Gray and key organisations such as the International Co-operative Alliance, Plunkett Foundation, UN agencies and the Co-operative College have had in building the international co-operative movement we see today.”
