Product Description


"'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"

Just the Facts Man... 19 Nov. 2008
By Assumed Name - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I bought this book and pushed through it in a matter of about a week of free time. The book is mostly facts, heavy facts of the past and present. It is presented in such a way that even those against fair trade would be even more wary of stepping into the moral market of coffee fetishism. Regardless of all that, it was a decent read and helped give me good solid information for both sides. Where it all came from, where it is at and where it is going.
