This book demonstrates that the cooperative model is based on principles essential to building a more just and democratic society. It is argued that this is the best economic reform alternative to neoliberal capitalism and authoritarian socialism in Cuba, and that this model can also radically transform other economies around the world.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Crises of classical socialism and global capitalism are leading many to re-examine an alternative system based on workers' self-directed cooperatives. Its concepts and realizations are building hopes and concrete plans for progressive change in Cuba and beyond. Camila and her co-authors excellently explore this important, historic project.

Richard D. Wolff, Professor of Economics Emeritus, University of Massachusetts, Amherst, author of Democracy at Work

This impressive collection of essays, by Cuban and non-Cuban thinkers, could not be more timely both for Cuba, which is in the process of restructuring its economy, and for most of the rest of the world, which, given the seemingly intractable crisis of global capitalism, should be doing the same. These essays are infused with both realism and hope.

David Schweickart, Professor of Philosophy, Loyola University Chicago, author of After Capitalism

A most important collection of seminal essays on the role of cooperatives in the capitalist and socialist development process. It provides a series of theoretical and analytical probes into a critically important development issue and a window into an ongoing debate on how best to adapt the Cuban model to the 21st century.

Henry Veltmeyer, Professor of Sociology and International Development Studies at Saint Mary's University (Halifax, Canada), author of Plantation Economy in the Age of 21st Century Globalisation
