dc.description.abstract Rural development has recently gained extensive attention mainly in developing countries where the substantial majority of the people live in rural areas and they essentially depend on farm activities. The nexus between Rural and Co-operatives development is increasingly becoming important as most rural inhabitants are engaged in agricultural sector which is anchored in co-operative associations. This work gives a review of the book titled “Co-operative organisations for rural development: organisational and management aspects” by Johannes Kuhn. The text gives the developmental aspects of co-operative organisations and their implications in rural settings. The book is reviewed with the intention to address the linkage between co-operatives and rural development. While the two concepts have been widely studied as separate ideas, the nexus between them still needs a further examination. The review identified the main weaknesses, strengths, ideas, concepts, gaps and future research areas which might be of interest to policy makers, co-operators, researchers, university students and lecturers in the field of co-operative business management, rural development, rural financial inclusions, agricultural marketing co-operatives. Nonetheless, the inclusion of practical cases from rural settings makes this book is an old wine which keeps on getting stronger as it continues to serve as one of the most useful resource to students, researchers and rural development experts in developing countries. en_US
