This volume is for anyone whose job it is to assist people to start their own businesses, or "income-generating projects", and who is considering the merits of group as opposed to individual enterprise. Emphasis is placed on decision-making based on an understanding of the issues involved and on local needs rather than any preconceived preferences. "Their own idea" starts with a general introduction to workers' co-operatives and their history and present position in industrialized and developing countries. It explores 13 detailed case studies of workers' co-operatives in Asia, Africa and the Caribbean. Some of these projects have failed and others have succeeded, but they all have important lessons and warnings for anyone who may be involved in similar enterprises.
