    The book traces the history of global trade, the impact of current global trading arrangements on poverty, inequality and the environment, its hugely differential consequences for high-income and low income countries, and the future options for revised trading arrangements.

  • Looting Africaby Patrick Bond

    Zed Books 2006; US$ 25.95

    Despite the rhetoric, the people of Sub-Saharan Africa are becoming poorer, and Africa‘s gains have been mainly limited to public relations. The central problems remain exploitative debt and financial relationships with the North, phantom aid, unfair trade, distorted investment and the continent‘s brain/skills drain. Moreover, capitalism... more...

    Zed Books 2006; US$ 34.95

    Daily life in Africa is governed by the ‘petty‘ corruption of public officials in services such as health, transport, or the judicial system.

The authors construct an illuminating analytical framework around the... more...

  • Free Tradeby Graham Dunkley

    Zed Books 2004; US$ 20.95

    Free trade and its virtues are a mantra of contemporary economics, and a fixed point of policy for the World Trade Organization. But there are many economists who disagree, and there are many ideas for alternative ways of organizing world trade and increasing the development chances for poor countries. Little wonder that trade has moved beyond the... more...

  • Genocide, War Crimes and the Westby Adam Jones

    Zed Books 2004; US$ 36.95

    Genocide and war crimes are increasingly the focus of scholarly and activist attention. Much controversy exists over how, precisely, these grim phenomena should be defined and conceptualized. Genocide, War Crimes & the West tackles this controversy, and clarifies our understanding of an important but under-researched dimension: the involvement of the... more...

  • George W. Bush and the War on Womenby Barbara Finlay

    Zed Books 2006; US$ 27.95

    The actions and policies of the George W. Bush administration as they impact on women in the United States and abroad have been a largely ignored aspect of his presidency. Bush‘s policies have in many ways reversed or inhibited women‘s progress over the past three decades. While the media have focused on his opposition to abortion, Bush‘s... more...

  • Governing under Stressby Marjorie Griffin Cohen; Stephen Clarkson

    Zed Books 2004; US$ 34.95

    Certain countries are characterised by the distinctive structural condition of semi-peripherality. Whether defined in social, cultural, economic or simply spatial terms, semi-peripheral countries share a consciousness of subordination to the centre - specifically the United States - as well as the means to resist. This differentiates them from both... more...
