September 2000
With new markets opening up for goods produced by artisans from all parts of the world, craft commercialization and craft industries have become key components of local economies. Now with the emergence of the Fair Trade movement and public opposition to sweatshop labor, many people are demanding that artisans in third world countries not be exploited for their labor. Bringing together case studies from the Americas and Asia, this timely collection of articles addresses the interplay among subsistence activities, craft production, and the global market. It contributes to current debates on economic inequality by offering practical examples of the political, economic, and cultural issues surrounding artisan production as an expressive vehicle of ethnic and gender identity. Striking a balance between economic and ethnographic analyses, the contributors observe what has worked and what hasn't in a range of craft cooperatives and show how some artisans have expanded their entrepreneurial role by marketing crafts in addition to producing them. Among the topics discussed are the accommodation of craft traditions in the global market, fair trade issues, and the emerging role of the anthropologist as a proactive agent for artisan groups. As the gap between rich and poor widens, the fate of subsistence economies seems more and more uncertain. The artisans in this book show that people can and do employ innovative opportunities to develop their talents, and in the process strengthen their ethnic identities.

An interesting and valuable read." --"Anthropology of Work Review"

4.0 von 5 Sternen Some revealing case studies.. 13. August 2007
Von Patrick M. Broderick - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
This book is far from comprehensive if you wish to gain solid knowledge about Fair Trade, but is very valuable as a supplamental knowledge about the practical workings of the CRAFT side of the Fair Trade market. In other words, it will tell you nothing about the FOOD industries within the Fair Trade market.

The strong conclusions I got from this book are that 1.) a successful Fair Trade operation is a democratic one, 2.) access to finance, industry knowledge, economic knowledge and practical know-how are all important pieces to the Fair Trade puzzle which become obstacles if they're missing and 3.) Fair Trade is fragile. Fickle consumerism is definitely enough to crush the craft side of the market.

This is a great learning tool for those who want to avoid the mistakes other Fair Trade operations have made. Again, the emphasis is on practical, qualitative information based on case studies. Take it for what it is.
5.0 von 5 Sternen great book! 14. Mai 2013
