In an era of globalization, international trade is a fact of life. The increasing conflicts
surrounding negotiations on trade liberalization - from the WTO debacle at Seattle in 1999
to the explosive events surrounding the meeting of the G8 in Genoa in 2001 - illustrate the
breadth and depth of concern amongst governments, academics, activists and civil society.
The disputes focus on the potential impacts of an unfettered global market place on jobs,
social cohesion and the environment.
A growing, but disparate, literature has emerged to debate these questions, and
The Earthscan Reader on International Trade and Sustainable Development provides
an excellent sourcebook that consolidates the lessons learned thus far to guide academics,
practitioners, activists and the concerned public in the next decade of work on these issues.
