Beschreibung

This book traces the historic relationships between cotton production, the international cotton trade and poverty south of the Sahara, and assesses various approaches to corporate social responsibility and nongovernmental policy advocacy in this area.

'Adam Sneyd's critique significantly contributes to the ongoing debate on poverty among commodity producers.' - Jomo Kwame Sundaram, UN Assistant Secretary General for Economic Development

'This is a must read for scholars and policy-makers who are attempting to understand the micro-realities and lived experience of Africa's poverty problem. Sneyd belongs to an innovative and gifted generation of young scholars who are forcing us to rethink the basics of international political economy. His important book deserves high praise.' - Daniel Drache, Associate Director, Robarts Centre for Canadian Studies and Professor of Political Science, York University, Toronto, Canada

'This book offers a thoughtful and balanced assessment of the linkages between cotton production and poverty in Africa in an era of economic globalization. The book's discussion of new governance initiatives such as corporate social responsibility efforts is both rich in detail and highly engaging.' Jennifer Clapp, CIGI Chair in Global Environmental Governance and Professor, Balsillie School of International Affairs and Environment and Resources Department, University of Waterloo, Canada
