The Mondragon Cooperatives

Workplace Democracy and Globalisation

By Amanda Latinne

This book is a critical reflection on the origin and further development of one of the most highly-praised cooperative enterprises in the world: the Mondragon cooperatives in the Spanish Basque Country. At a time when many people regard cooperative entrepreneurship as an ethically sound economic alternative to the traditional organization of companies and businesses, the book draws attention to the unavoidable impact of globalization, which not only affects the workers' involvement and participation in cooperative enterprises, but also their employment itself. *** "...interesting overview on the background and on the development of the Mondragon cooperative movement from the 1950s until today." -- Comparative Labor Law & Policy Journal, Vol. 37, No. 1, Fall 2015 (Series: Publications on Labour Law - Vol. 3) [Subject: Labor Law, Business Law]
