Canada's Rural Revolutionary (2nd ed)Author: Jim Lotz
Publisher: Breton Books
During the Great Depression, Moses Coady, a priest and an educator, set out to rescue people from poverty, dependency and despair.
Based at St. Francis Xavier University in Antigonish, Nova Scotia, Coady and his followers laid the foundations for the co-operative and credit union movements that now play a significant role in the social and economic life of people around the world.
Moses Coady, Canada’s Rural Revolutionary tells the story of this genuine Canadian hero and his remarkable legacy known as The Antigonish Movement — an innovative experiment in community development that applied Catholic social teaching to rural economics in order to enable a more just and humane society.
Includes 8 pages of archival photographs.
