The Earthscan Reader on International Trade and Sustainable Development
Kevin Gallagher, Jacob Werksman, EarthscanISBN: 185383887X;
In an era of globalization, international trade is a fact of life. The increasing conflicts surrounding negotiations on trade liberalization -- from the WTO debacle at Seattle in 1999 to the explosive events surrounding the meeting of the GB in Genoa in 2001 -- illustrate the breadth and depth of concern among governments, academics, activists and civil society. The disputes focus on the potential impacts of an unfettered global market place on jobs, social cohesion and the environment. A growing, but disparate, literature has emerged to debate these questions, and "The Earthscan Reader on International Trade and Sustainable Development" provides an excellent sourcebook that consolidates the lessons learned thus far to guide academics, practitioners,activists and the concerned public in the next decade of work on these issues.
