"A well-researched, scholarly, and deeply disturbing expose of modern-day slavery with well-thought-out strategies for what to do to combat this scourge. None of us is allowed the luxury of imagined impotence. We can do something about it." - Desmond Tutu"From the Publisher:
Slavery is illegal throughout the world, yet more than twenty-seven million people are still trapped in one of history's oldest social institutions. Kevin Bales' disturbing story of contemporary slavery reaches from Pakistan's brick kilns and Thailand's brothels to various multinational corporations. His investigations reveal how the tragic emergence of a 'new slavery' is inextricably linked to the global economy. This completely revised edition includes a new preface. All of the author's royalties from this book go to fund antislavery projects around the world.
