Written by David Ransom.
Published in Canada in association with New Internationalist Publications™ Ltd. by Between the Lines, 2006.


From coffee farming in Peru and cocoa production in Ghana to jeans manufacture in China and the Banana War of Guatemala and the Caribbean, the fully revised edition of The No-Nonsense Guide to Fair Trade 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 questions is not whether trade should be regulated or deregulated, but whether it is to be the master or servant of the people.

An updated conclusion 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?
