"'Does the fair trade network represent a fundamental challenge to the disastrous social and environmental effects of corporate led globalization, or does it embody a contradictory effort to integrate poor workers and farmers into the global neoliberal project? Fair Trade Coffee provides a brilliant response to this critically important question, and demonstrates that to achieve lasting success the network must work for broader social and economic reforms and an alternative trading system. This is a must-read for anyone concerned with free trade and social/environmental justice.' Daniel Faber, Director, Green Justice Research Collaborative, Northeastern University"
