The No-Nonsense Guides target those topics that a large army of voters cares about, but that politicos evade.
A splendid series of pocketable guides to issue politics.
David Ransom sets the context with first-hand stories from around the world. He argues that the time has now come to put body and soul, justice and the environment, together.
What motivated the founders of the New Internationalist magazine was a high idealism; a real sense that we could change things; that if people knew the facts about what was going on, then they could actually have the wherewithal to campaign and try to make the world a better place.

A completely new investigation of the fair trade phenomenon, from the origins to what it is likely to become.
This completely new investigation of the fair trade phenomenon looks in depth at the emergence over the last two decades of a movement that aims to challenge the ethical foundations of the global market.

Yet even as the fair trade movement has gained momentum it has hit problems of its own Some have been angered by the granting of a Fairtrade mark to the biggest food corporations, worried that it is becoming just another kind of promotion.?Sally Blundell uncovers the origins of fair trade, looks at examples from all over the world of how it is working and asks what it is likely to become.
Diagrams, charts and graphs used throughout to illustrate key information.
