What the past can offer the future

Gloom and misery everywhere
Stormy weather, stormy weather…

The clouds have certainly been lowering recently over Manchester’s cooperative quarter, but let’s pick ourselves up, dust ourselves down, and see what insights the past can offer the future.  I mentioned a couple of weeks back that I had received a copy of Building Co-operation, the important new history of the Co-operative Wholesale Society/Co-operative Group which (with, let’s face it, terrible timing) has just been published.  My review of the book is in today’s edition of Co-operative News and is also available on their website here.
