Praise for \"THE TRAVELS OF A T-SHIRT IN THE GLOBAL ECONOMY\"

\"Engrossing . . . (Rivoli) goes wherever the T-shirt goes, and there are surprises around every corner . . . full of memorable characters and vivid scenes.\"
--\"Time\"

\"An engaging and illuminating saga. . . . Rivoli follows her T-shirt along its route, but that is like saying that Melville follows his whale. . . . Her nuanced and fair-minded approach is all the more powerful for eschewing the pretense of ideological absolutism, and her telescopic look through a single industry has all the makings of an economics classic.\"
--\"The New York Times\"

\"Rarely is a business book so well written that one would gladly stay up all night to finish it. Pietra Rivoli\'s \"The Travels of a T-Shirt in the Global Economy\" is just such a page-turner.\"
--\"CIO\" magazine

\"Succeeds admirably . . . T-shirts may not have changed the world, but their story is a useful account of how free trade and protectionism certainly have.\"
--\"Financial Times\"

\"[A] fascinating exploration of the history, economics, and politics of world trade . . . \"The Travels of a T-Shirt in the Global Economy\" is a thought-provoking yarn that exhibits the ugly, the bad, and the good of globalization, and points to the unintended positive consequences of the clash between proponents and opponents of free trade.\"
--\"Star-Telegram\" (Fort Worth)

\"Part travelogue, part history, and part economics, \"The Travels of a T-Shirt in the Global Economy\" is ALL storytelling, and in the grand style. A must-read.\"
--Peter J. Dougherty, Senior Economics Editor, Princeton University Press author of \"Who\'s Afraid of Adam Smith?\"

\"A readable andevenhanded treatment of the complexities of free trade . . . As Rivoli repeatedly makes clear, there is absolutely nothing free about free trade except the slogan.\"
--\"San Francisco Chronicle\"

\"The Travels of a T-Shirt in the Global Economy\" takes the reader on a fascinating, around-the-world journey to reveal the economic and political lessons from the life story of a simple t-shirt. Over five years, business professor Pietra Rivoli traveled from a Texas cotton field to a Chinese factory to a used clothing market in Africa, to investigate compelling questions about the politics, economics, ethics, and history of modern business and globalization. Using the story of the t-shirt to illustrate the major issues of the globalization debate, this uniquely entertaining business book offers a surprising, enlightening, and balanced look at one of the major topics of our time.
