Item Description...
Powerful and stirring, Not for Sale is a gut-wrenching, tear-wringing tour through the inhumane world of trafficking. With personal stories from trafficked peoples around the globe--families enslaved by $30.00 loans, women in the sex trade, and children sold for labor--you'll be moved to take a stand. Highlighting the need for abolitionists even in today's "modern" world, and the conditions that make escape so improbable, this is a book desperately needed by the world. Discusses mature topics.

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

Reviews - What do our customers think?
The book that changed my life  Nov 7, 2009
I spent the week it took me to read this book crying, losing sleep, and unable to concentrate on anything but what I was learning.

I didn't want to know that teenage girls were being raped for profit in brothels. Or that little boys were brainwashed and forced to kill in rebel armies. Or that some of the products I bought were inexpensive because the person who produced them was forced to work for no pay.

And I didn't want to get involved.

But by the time I finished Not for Sale I knew I had to do something. Because if I ignored this and let it continue unchallenged I would be just as guilty as those who perpetuated these horrors in the first place.

This book changed me. I'm so glad it did. Working for the abolition of the modern-day slave trade is heartwrenching and exhilirating and discouraging and energizing. And completely worth it. I hope each person who reads this book will follow up by visiting [...] to find out ways they can also get involved. This is not going to end without our involvment.
Inspiring...  Oct 10, 2009
The tails are hard to read when still learning about the depth of human trafficking. But, it definitely inspires you to help and want to learn more.
Great Purchase  Aug 11, 2009
This was a great purchase. I was impressed with everything about this book, from the content to the way it was written. The author did a great job mixing historical content, real life stories and the information on the organizations doing something about it.

Definitely recommend this book as a way to get an overview on many social injustices taking place in the world.
Are you ready to take the red pill?  Jun 24, 2009
Do you remember the scene in The Matrix where Morpheus has given Neo the quick intro, including the horrifying truth about how humans have become merely an energy-producing commodity? And how Neo is overwhelmed to the point of throwing up? Well, that may well be how you feel after reading this book and learning that slavery is alive, prospering, and likely as close as your local massage parlor, restaurant, strip club, or fruit plantation.

There are many hard truths here (did you know there are more slaves now than ever before? 27m?), but if you believe that it's better to know such truths (and fight them) than to remain safely in a cuddly world of illusion, you should read this book, pass it on, and then join or support one of the brave organizations standing up for human rights and justice.
Eye Opening and Disturbing  Jun 11, 2009
Recently after watching "Amazing Grace" on DVD, I found myself wanting to know more about modern day slavery. I did some online research and this book kept coming up again and again. I hadn't heard of the author, so I wasn't exactly sure what to expect.

This book is eye-opening and heartbreaking. It tells the real-life stories of people caught in a life of forced labor, sexual slavery and other forms of modern day slavery. This book will make you angry that such atrocities can and do happen in today's world.

To be honest, before I started researching the topic, I believed that slavery had ended after the Civil War.

While the slavery stories are heart-breaking, this book also gives a glimmer of hope. It also tells the stories of modern day abolitionists who are making a real difference, often at great personal risk. These incredibly brave men and women are not willing to stand passively by. They are willing to get involved and do what they can. It also gives a great reference guide of modern-day abolition movements and gives the reader practical ways they can be involved.

As I was thinking about this issue, I had a thought that I think applies perfectly to the abolition movement and human trafficking "No one can do everything, but everyone can do something."

We in America tend to think that the way to solve any problem is to throw money at it. If you are able, please support organizations like the ones in this book. But this book also makes the point that time and talent are equally as valuable.

This is a great book for someone who is fairly new to the human trafficking issue. It balances tragedy with hope. This is a book that every American should read. I think this book should be required reading for college students. This is an issue where awareness must be increased. If you buy this book, purchase several copies. This is definitely one you will want to pass on to others.
