Being poetry, history, photography, this book is a co-operative venture. It bears The Co-op Label for your inspection. While Part I portrays immigration and the anti-immigration activities of 1918, Part II alludes to anti-communists sentiments of the 1950s. Although Part II was inspired in part by The Co-operative Builder, January and July 1943 issues, most of it is fiction. Part III hovers around the question-whether Co-operation is a remnant of the past or a seed of our future. This, we think, is a past that more and more needs reinvention.
