About Trade Imbalance:  The Struggle to Weigh Human Rights Concerns in Trade Policymaking:
Trade is controversial; around the world many people believe that trade agreements, even trade per se, undermines particular human rights such as labor rights or access to affordable medicine.  While some countries use trade policies to advance specific human rights such as property or labor rights, policymakers nevertheless struggle to achieve both goals.  In this book, authors Susan Aaronson and Jamie Zimmerman use stories about AIDS, frogs, chocolate, culture, tires and other topics to provide readers with new insights into this relationship.  Trade Imbalance also includes the first study of how South Africa, Brazil, the United States and the European Union make trade policy, coordinate trade and human rights objectives and resolve conflicts.  Aaronson and Zimmerman show how human rights issues are seeping into the WTO, and provide suggestions to policymakers for making their trade and human rights policies more coherent.
