Coffeehouses and Cooperatives
This chapter examines cooperatives and coffeehouses during the 1960s as a case study of the flexible relationship between official institutions and social relations, first viewing coffeehouses as forums of public life, but stating that they were once the instruments of the regional social oligarchy of the post-classical period. Next, it discusses the hierarchy of gender and of age, as seen in coffeehouses, and compares the coffeehouses of the New Republic with those of the Old Republic. The second part of the chapter focuses on the cooperatives, specifically the Tea Producers' Assistance Cooperative.
