The poor? Or the transnational corporations?Will free trade help Third World farmers find new international markets?How can countries - North and South, rich and poor - protect their farmers?How can self-sufficiency in food production be achieved?His book exposes the contradiction between Western governments' rhetoric about reducing world poverty and the drive to yet more trade liberalization.
