Additional useful sources[edit]

Here's a good book I found on People's Warehouse, a Minneapolis food co-op.

http://books.google.com/books?id=Oj8Zc6YEBZYC&printsec=frontcover&dq=food+cooperatives+history&hl=en&sa=X&ei=9rbaT9O_KejW2AWr3-XLCA&ved=0CEMQ6AEwAg#v=onepage&q=food%20cooperatives%20history&f=false

The source I used in the history section also details People's warehouse and the controversy of co-op members over issues such as wages. I believe this could be a good addition to the article if properly summarized. Shaded0 (talk) 05:02, 15 June 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for the addition. Cox's book is great, but I think we'd be better off with generalized information about food cooperatives that emphasized a global perspective, especially in an article this short. That book and the incidents surrounding People's warehouse would be a great addition to the The O (political group) article though. Cheers, Gobōnobo + c 17:31, 15 June 2012 (UTC)
