This book is "an empirically grounded call for us to look way beyond capitalism to create a better present and future."
Professor of Political Science Richard Weiner has co-edited a new book titled "Sustainable Community Movement Organizations: Solidarity Economies and Rhizomatic Practices" in collaboration with Francesca Forno of the University of Trento, Italy.
Published in April 2020 by Routledge Taylor & Francis Group, this is a volume of essays that shine the light on an emergent wave of community-based, sustainable economies such as cooperative banks led by Black diaspora women and alternative forms of political participation such as the new commons in Southern Europe.
"This imaginative and often audacious volume searches for alternatives … social organization from below, fresh forms of political participation and the flexibility of networks," writes Ruggles Professor of Political Science and History Ira Katznelson of Columbia University.
The book is also "an empirically grounded call for us to look way beyond capitalism to create a better present and future," writes University of Toronto's Ann Armstrong, director of Social Enterprise Initiative.
