Praise for THE FAIR TRADE SCANDAL:



'I strongly recommend this book to all those who are unsure of whether Fair
Trade deserves to be supported or not. Ndongo Samba Sylla has given the
answer to this question by conducting an in-depth survey and a critical
reading of the literature on the subject. The result is, to my knowledge,
the best book in this field.' - Samir Amin, Director of the Third World
Forum, Senegal



------------------------------------------------------------

THE FAIR TRADE SCANDAL takes aim at the Fair Trade consumer movement which
many assume to be entirely benign. Through a razor-sharp analysis based on
insider knowledge, Ndongo Sylla shows that there is a big gap between the
rhetoric of Fair Trade and its practical results.



Sylla shows empirically that Fair Trade excludes those who need it the most
and that its benefits are essentially captured by the wealthiest groups in
the supply chain. Based on his experience of working for Fairtrade
International, Sylla shows the flaws in the Fair Trade system which
compromise its ethical mission.



The Fair Trade Scandal is both a provocative and deeply informative
exploration of the Fair Trade phenomenon, suitable for specialists and
non-specialists alike.
