Masters of Their Own Destiny by M.M. CoadyThis one is not going to be everyones cup of tea, but for me, it is a treasure.

As the back cover copy says, ...the book reflects Dr. Coadys indomitable will to conquer social and economic injustice and his firm belief in the efficacy of adult education and economic cooperation as means to this end. Been meaning to read more about the Antigonish Movement for years, but never got around to it. Then my friend Susan Imel gave me her copy of this book, so I could finally learn from the source. Now I am curious to find out how the movement fared in the years since this book was published. The message of the value of economic cooperation is one that we had better learn soon, before capitalism makes the planet uninhabitable.
