Abstract

Midway through his courageous and engaging book, Belching Out the Devil[: Global Adventures with Coca-Cola], Mark Thomas becomes intrigued by an offer on a Coke Web site, "If you want to know the truth about the Coca-Cola Company: Ask the farmer in India." Thomas, a British reporter and comedian best known for exposing political and corporate crime, ponders the invitation: "I do like it when companies write stuff like this…as if inviting all and sundry to drop whatever they are doing, travel to India, drive out to the farmer's place and ask if he will vouch for Coke."
