New book examines history of social enterprise development in the West Mids

Now this is interesting. I have just noticed (OK, received a slight nudge) that Lambert Academic Publishing has just released a book called Towards a Paradigm Shift in Social Enterprise, by Chris Newis — who many of you will know, of course.

There aren’t many people around in the West Mids or maybe elsewhere either with as long a history in the social enterprise and co-op sector. Amongst other things (I am told) the book is a history of the development of social enterprise in the West Midlands and contains interviews with social enterprises both past and present.

Sadly, it isn’t cheap but request it at your library..or buy it for your business library and off-set it against tax….

Congratulations are in order — let’s hope it races up the Amazon charts for Chris.
