Dear Urbanth-L:

The University of California Press  is pleased to announce the publication of:

Brewing Justice: Fair Trade Coffee, Sustainability, and Survival

Daniel Jaffee is Assistant Professor of Sociology at Michigan State University.


"_Brewing Justice_ is a pioneering study of the variety of fair trade 
movements; a prospectus for a more radical vision of fair trade-an 
alternative sort of market; and a vital contribution to contemporary 
debates over free trade, the global agro-food system and the 
so-called 'movement of movements'. A tour de force."-Michael Watts, 
University of California, Berkeley

Fair trade is a fast-growing alternative market intended to bring 
better prices and greater social justice to small farmers around the 
world. But is it working? This vivid and detailed study of coffee 
farmers in Mexico offers the first thorough investigation of the 
social, economic, and environmental benefits of fair trade.

Full information about the book, including the table of contents, is
