AbstractThis article is a review of five books on the Mondragon Cooperatives spanning several decades, not only to offer short critiques of their contents, but to use them as a starting point to bring Mondragon up to date and summarize its core philosophy in a way that helps the cooperative movement, and the wider socialist movement as well. The article is also full of interesting discussions held during a study tour in Mondragon in September of 2010.
