The Co-operative Revolution - Graphic Novel
A stunning new 80 page graphic novel has been published to shine a new light on the origins of the co-operative movement and how it is has grown to become the most successful grassroots campaign the world has ever known.
We have one copy of the graphic novel to give away and for your chance to win it just answer the question below.
It is well established that 28 weavers and artisans got together and established a co-operative shop in Toad Lane, Rochdale in 1844 – and this went on to kick-start a global co-operative movement that is now a billion strong - the novel is published as part of the celebrations to mark the United Nations 2012 International Year of Co-operatives.
What is less well known is the links between the Rochdale Pioneers and the radical politics of the day – their aim was so much more than the provision of unadulterated, affordable food.
In addition to the new historical context, the Novel tells of the incredible diversity of the 1.4million co-operatives that now operate across the world (from snake catchers in India to the supporter-owned FC Barcelona) It also explains how scientific thinking has evolved in recent years to recognise that co-operation is a major driving force in nature – equalling the power of selfish genes.
