Description

This important and highly relevant book is intended to serve as a catalyst for nothing less than the transformation of global society. Author Keith Harris (a European living in Scandinavia) locates the primary difficulties in Western society today in the economic domain, (using Rudolf Steiner's threefold social model with its three domains: cultural, political and economic). Harris argues that it is in this sphere that initiative will have to be taken if Western and global society is to be transformed. What is needed is for social idealists and altruists to enter commercial life and create cooperative-like, fair-trading economic enterprises and for widespread consumer organizations to spring up among ordinary people in support of such initiatives.

"The book is divided into three parts. The first part looks at certain worrying trends in Western society. The second considers what we can do, both individually and through working together with others to guide society in a radically different direction -- toward social and economic transparency, toward cooperation, toward realizing the organic and fair-trading ideals, while holding back those forces attempting to condition Western populations to surveillance and control. The third part deals with what might happen to society if we fail to bring the 'deep-democratic' ideal into economic life." (Preface, Cooperation, by Keith Harris)

It is the author's hope that the ideas in this book will touch the hearts of readers and become transformed into ideals capable of catalyzing the will to alter our social patterns .
