Summary

Book review: Gavin Fridell's "Alternative Trade: Legacies for the Future" (2013)

By Elizabeth Bennett

Fridell wants readers to know that trade policies can explicitly aim to create a “more cooperative, socially just world order” (9) and that when they do take on this mission they can deliver widespread, meaningful benefits to the world’s most vulnerable populations, in particular producers of internationally traded commodities. For scholars and students interested in the relationship between economic justice and international trade, Alternative Trade: Legacies of the Future is a well-researched, beautifully written, and original, must-read book.
