Description

The subject of widespread attention when first released, including the pages of the New York Times Book Review, Myths of Free Trade provides a front-row seat to the Washington spectacle of corporate lobbying and political intimidation that keeps the free-trade mantra alive as American policy, despite all the evidence of its failure.

U.S. Representative Sherrod Brown&;a leading progressive voice in Congress and a twelve-year veteran of Washington&;s trade wars&;takes apart free-trade dogma, myth by myth. His book is an accessible, personal, globe-trotting chronicle, taking the reader from the coffee fields of Nicaragua to the sweatshops of China; from the toxic wastelands on the Mexican border to the halls of Congress.

Described as an &;essential primer&; by The Progressive and a &;voice of truth&; by Public Citizen News, this edition includes a fascinating update that describes the congressional battle over the Central American Free Trade Agreement&;a battle led by Tom DeLay on one side and Sherrod Brown on the other.
