BOOK REVIEW – The Travels of a T-Shirt in the Global Economy, by Pietra Rivoli

The life of a standard T-shirt is nothing but a combination of complex processes influenced by history, politics, geography and economics among others; a perfect example to unveil how the world has been, is and will be changing in the future. Pietra Rivoli studies this matter thoroughly in “The travels of a t-shirt in the global economy”, an adventurous, well-researched book featuring relevant people in the changing environment of textile manufacturing and explains crucial events and scenarios that leave no one feeling indifferent, starting with the cotton harvest process in America during the late 1700s to the booming recycled clothing business in mitumba markets at present.
