T-Shirt Travels Review – 7: The Snarling Army

We learn about the “Alphabet Army” which is the name Pietra gives to all of the acronyms which together make up the American textile lobby. They were and are an extremely vigorous and active lobby. Lobbying is nothing unusual but their longevity and effectiveness is inspiring (for some) and frightening (to others).

An early quote explains this chapter, “the extent to which the industry can speak with one voice – to snarl together goes a long way toward explaining its political influence.” (123) The chapter ends by saying that while the pack of snarling dogs has gotten a bit smaller, they are still surely snarling.
