A revised and updated edition of the provocative book from the man Studs Terkel calls "one of the hippest members of Congress."The subject of widespread attention when first released, including the pages of the New York Times Book Review, Myths of Free Trade provides a front-row seat to the Washington spectacle of corporate lobbying and political intimidation that keeps the free-trade mantra alive as American policy, despite all the evidence of its failure.U.S. Representative Sherrod Brown—a leading progressive voice in Congress and a twelve-year veteran of Washington's trade wars—takes apart free-trade dogma, myth by myth. His book is an accessible, personal, globe-trotting chronicle, taking the reader from the coffee fields of Nicaragua to the sweatshops of China; from the toxic wastelands on the Mexican border to the halls of Congress.Described as an "essential primer" by The Progressive and a "voice of truth" by Public Citizen News, this paperback edition includes a fascinating update that describes the 2005 congressional battle over the Central American Free Trade Agreement—a battle led by Tom DeLay on one side and Sherrod Brown on the other.
