About this series
The Book Series on Cooperative Management provides an invaluable forum for creative and scholarship work on cooperative economics, organizational, financial and marketing aspects of business cooperatives and development of cooperative communities throughout the Mediterranean region and worldwide. The main objectives of this book series are to advance knowledge related to cooperative entrepreneurship as well as to generate theoretical knowledge aiming to promoting research within various sectors wherein cooperatives operate (agriculture, banking, real estate, insurance, and other forms). Scholarly edited volumes and monographs should relate to one of these areas, should have a theoretical and/or empirical problem orientation, and should demonstrate innovation in theoretical and empirical analyses, methodologies, and applications. Analyses of cooperative economic problems and phenomena pertinent to managerial research, extension, and teaching (e.g., case studies) regarding cooperative entrepreneurship are equally encouraged.
