in Mainstreaming co-operation
Abstract only
Log-in for full text

This chapter explores life and ideas of George Jacob Holyoake, one of the leading figures of the British co-operative movement in the nineteenth century. An Owenite socialist and secularist who became well known as the last Briton imprisoned for blasphemy, Holyoake was a powerful orator and journalist on behalf of the developing co-operative movement. The chapter argues that Holyoake’s life and work offer key insights for the present co-operative movement, by offering a set of ideas that offer a moral and social dimension conspicuously absent from the profit-maximising individualism of neoliberal theory and modern capitalism.
