Abstract:

An around-the-world adventure to reveal the life story of the author's six-dollar T-shirt. Traveling from a West Texas cotton field to a Chinese factory, and from trade negotiations in Washington to a used clothing market in Africa, she examines international trade through the life story of this simple product. She uses a simple T-shirt to reveal the politics and the human side of the globalization debate. Within the fabric of every product are fascinating businesses, good and bad politics, revealing histories, and especially the hopes and dreams of real people. These people's stories - and the story of the T-shirt that ties them together - present the most nuanced look yet at the economics and politics of globalization.
