Introducing FIC’s newest title to the Community Bookstore, For All the People unveils a history of cooperative movements that have largely been omitted from history.

This comprehensive book will pique curiosity in those new to cooperative movements, deepened understanding for those active in current movements, and incite excitement and inspiration for all.

“From the colonial workshop to the modern mass-assembly line, from the family farm to the corporate hierarchy,” understand the landscape of our cooperative past so we may effectively shape our future.
