Item Description...
Profiles the new generation of abolitionists and their work in leading the struggle to end human trafficking and sexual slavery around the world.

Publishers Description

Award–winning journalist David Batstone reveals the story of a new generation of 21st century abolitionists and their heroic campaign to put an end to human bondage. In his accessible and inspiring book, Batstone carefully weaves the narratives of activists and those in bondage in a way that not only raises awareness of the modern–day slave trade, but also serves as a call to action.

With 2007 bringing the 200th anniversary of the climax of the 19th century abolitionist movement, the world pays tribute to great visionary figures such as William Wilberforce of the United Kingdom and American Frederick Douglass for their remarkable strides toward framing slavery as a moral issue that people of good conscience could not tolerate. This anniversary serves not only as a commemorative date for battles won against slavery, but also as a reminder that slavery and bondage still persist in the 21st century. An estimated 27 million people around the globe suffer in situations of forced labor and commercial sexual exploitation from which they cannot free themselves. Trafficking in people has become increasingly transnational in scope and highly lucrative. After illegal drug sales and arms trafficking, human trafficking is today the third most profitable criminal activity in the world, generating $31 billion annually. As many as half of all those trafficked worldwide for sex and domestic slavery are children under 18 years of age.

Community Description
Human trafficking generates $31 billion annually and enslaves 27 million people around the globe, half of them children under the age of eighteen. Award-winning journalist David Batstone, whom Bono calls "a heroic character," profiles the new generation of abolitionists who are leading the struggle to end this appalling epidemic.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
inspiring survey  Mar 15, 2007
This book is moving. It is a great survey of SOME of the many deminsions of slavery today worldwide. It may move you to tears but it will also hopefully inspire you to become an abolishionist according to your own abilities, education, and passions.
I would recommend this book to anyone just now becomming aware of this global tragedy. Batstone balances stories of the enslaved, what the ordinary abolishionists are doing, and information on the system that facilitate the oppression that this issue begins to make concrete sense.
An awful book -- What will you do about it?  Mar 10, 2007
I have been working in Relief and Development for 26 years in Asia, particularly in war zones, refugee situations natural disasters, civil unrest and major social issues like trafficking. David Batstone gives a terrible, graphic picture of slavery in the 21st century from just about every continent. It grabs your heart and will not let you go. This issue will require the same kind of perserverance that William Wilbertforce overcame in abolishing slavery, changing laws and worldviews in the UK in the 18th century.

We have had the privilege of supporting the work of Pierre and Simonetta Tami and the Hagar Project in Cambodia since its inception. We have seen upclose the horror and pain of children as young as 6 years being sold, trafficked and abused. This book tells those stories in graphic, unbelievable detail from countries like Uganda, Thailand and Cambodia. These stories are not about statistics but about people with names and families who have endured hell, been scarred for life or have been killed in the process. You will not believe it, then you will become furious that this is happening today.

It also shows ordinary people that are a voice for the voiceless and are making an incredible, difference. There are just too few of them. Maybe, you will ask yourself, "How do I get involved in this global effort?" This book is a call to action.

Don't buy this book unless you are ready for engagement in a loving, compassionate fight against the evils of the 21st century slave trade.

Overwhelming but a MUST-READ  Feb 23, 2007
I just finished this book and I am thinking of using it as a text in my Freshman Seminar class this Fall. This is the first book that I've read about this crisis that does not rely on statistics and studies to tell the story of modern slavery. In poignant interviews Batstone reveals the miserable reality of the invisible people who care for the rest of us every day. Modern slaves cook, clean, sew and build our world and in return we turn a blind eye to their situation or even their existence. If you care at all about your fellow human beings you will read this book, share it and take action.

Batstone outlines several ways to take action and lists several resources available to all of us. Their lives and our souls are at stake if we don't start making changes and demanding change in others NOW.
