Abstract:

"A well-written, accessible, nicely balanced series of ethnographic cases--for those of us hungry to know more about the realities of fair trade on the ground, this volume is a nourishing meal of many courses."--Peggy F. Barlett, Goodrich C. White Professor of Anthropology, Emory University.

"This outstanding collection not only serves as an accessible introduction to Fair Trade but illuminates the gap between the sunny rhetoric and the actual practice. With ethnographic richness and nuance, the authors complicate our understanding of the market as a means of achieving economic and social justice."--Lisa Markowitz, Associate Professor of Anthropology, University of Louisville.

By 2008, total Fair Trade purchases in the developed world reached nearly$3 billion, a five-fold increase in four years. Consumers pay a "fair price" for Fair Trade items, which is meant to generate greater earnings for family farmers, cover the costs of production, and support socially just and environmentally sound practices. Yet constrained by existing markets and the entities that dominate them, Fair Trade often delivers material improvements for producers that are much more modest than the profound social transformations the movement claims to support.

There has been scant real-world assessment of Fair Trade's effectiveness. Drawing upon fine-grained anthropological studies of a variety of regions and commodity systems including Darjeeling tea, coffee, crafts, and cut flowers, Fair Trade and Social Justice represents the first book-length endeavor to use ethnographic case studies to assess whether the Fair Trade Movement is actually achieving its goals. --Book Jacket.
