Book News Annotation:

The fair trade movement encourages consumers--especially Westerners who are going to spend the money anyway--to pay attention to such matters as the working conditions and the environmental impact that underlie their purchases. Two veteran campaigners for human rights and economic justice and development describe both general values that such discernment supports, and some specific cases in which a moment's attention at the counter can make a lifetime of difference for farmers and artisans elsewhere in the world.
