Shawn, et al.: This isn't a book, but an article about a book: Last Sunday's New York Times Magazine has an article by Pramodedya Anata Toer, "The Book That Killed Colonialism: As the West Clamored for Spices, the Novelist 'Multatuli' Cried for Justice." It's about the book MAX HAVELAAR, which also has been made into a movie.
...which also led me to this very useful analysis of Toer's piece:Rethinking a Problematic Constellation: Postcolonialism and its Germanic Contexts (Pramoedya Ananta Toer/Multatuli) (Carl Niekerk Comparative Studies of South Asia, Africa, and the Middle East (Duke UP), special issue on "Comparative (Post)Colonialisms", 23.1 (2003): 45-56)

It has since been introduced in other European countries including Denmark. Coffee roasters seeking the right to sell coffee under the seal must comply with a number of fair trade criteria. Besides coffee roasters, Max Havelaar is working with companies offering chocolate, tea and bananas.
