Some brief overview of this book

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 Rivolis 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 Whos Afraid of Adam Smith?

A readable and evenhanded 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
