Description

The Travels of a T-Shirt in the Global Economy has been lauded by the New York Times, Financial Times, and reviewers worldwide.

The major themes and conclusions from the first edition are intact, but in response to questions from readers and students around the world, the second edition now includes:

  • Updates on the people, businesses, and politics involved in the production of the T-shirt.
  • Discussions of environmental issues related to both international trade and the T-shirt's life story.
