Reviews

"A refreshing reprise of the significant accomplishments of worker cooperatives in Latin America over the last two decades. In the aftermath of the Occupy movement, Ranis provides a unique roadmap for students and scholars for the practical application of worker cooperatives today and in the years to come."-- "Immanuel Ness, City University of New York"
"Provides a compelling overview of the potential for worker cooperatives to become a significant alternative to capitalist enterprises, and an innovative argument for the strategic use of eminent domain as a way of publicly supporting the expansion of a cooperative sector."-- "Erik Olin Wright, author of Understanding Class"
"A comprehensive treatment of both the theory of worker-cooperatives and their recent history. It reflects many years of field research and fully incorporates the most recent literature. This book will be indispensable to ongoing discussions about Left strategy."-- "Victor Wallis, managing editor of Socialism and Democracy"
"A valuable contribution to both the academic and political fields. Its direct and pleasant style, as well as its clarity and precision, not only makes it accessible but promotes a better understanding of the world we live in."
-- "HΓ©ctor Palomino, University of Buenos Aires"
"Offers a compelling case for worker cooperatives as antithesis and antidote to the neoliberal juggernaut. Without doubt, this is one of the best critical arguments in support of cooperatives and economic democracy I have recently read."-- "Marcelo Vieta, University of Toronto"
