This fully revised No-Nonsense Guide tells the human story behind the products we consume. Examining the contest between 'free' and 'fair' trade around the world, David Ransom argues that the key question is not whether trade should be regulated or deregulated, but whether it is to be the master or servant of the people. And a new concluding chapter explains how, as fair trade products are being turned into 'brands' by large corporations, a new contest opens - it is no longer just a question of fair versus free, but what kind of fair trade.

Another densely written volume aimed at high schoolers doing research. Really meant for Grade 10 an above. A little dated, given the publishing date of 2001.
