Ripped and Torn: Levi's, Latin America and the Bue Jean Dream

by Amaranta Wright - £7.99  Ebury Press (2006)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780091900847 | ISBN 10: 0091900840

When Amaranta Wright was hired by Levi's to travel through Latin America - her brief to befriend local teenagers and report back on their lives - she saw it as a means to explore a continent she loved. But as time passed and she witnessed first-hand the dehumanising effects of corporate globalisation, the more sinister and divisive aspects of what she was being asked to do became apparent.
Ripped and Torn is an evocative, startling and politically incisive portrait of a continent in crisis. It is a book about the arrogance with which we in the West refer to 'developing' continents, and the often insidious methods employed to transform people into consumers.
