From seed to shirt, Georgetown University business professor Pietra Rivoli skillfully traces a cultural and historical travelogue from the 1790s to 2009 as technological innovations, genetic engineering, human rights campaigns, and foreign policy agreements have transformed the arenas of farming and manufacturing. This Revised and Updated Second Edition revisits many of the characters and topics from the first edition, and adds material on environmental issues, popular resistance to free trade, and current U.S. trade policy.
