Publisher's Summary

Written by the world’s leading experts and campaigners, Modern Slavery: A Beginner’s Guide blends original research with shocking first-hand accounts from slaves themselves around the world to reveal the truth behind one of the worst humanitarian crises facing us today. Only a handful of slaves are reached and freed each year, but the authors offer hope for the future with a global blueprint that proposes to end slavery in our lifetime.

Critic Reviews

"A concise dismissal of the comforting myth that slavery is a thing of the past." (Aidan McQuade, Director of Slavery International)
"What is needed is nothing less than a new abolition movement, led by campaigners as determined as Douglass or Wilberforce. This timely and important book is its rallying call." ( The Times)
"A dazzling work of scholarship and protest, a clarion call that will, like the abolitionist literature of the 18th and 19th centuries, awaken people to the dehumanizing effects of global capitalism. Bales, Trodd, and Williamson are leading the way in the effort to end modern slavery." (John Stauffer, Harvard University professor of English and American Literature and African American Studies, award-winning author, and one of the world's leading scholars of antislavery movements)

Well done.

This is what it says it is. It is a description of slavery as it exist in the world today. Obviously written by abolitionist, it chronicles everything from to the debt slavery so common in India to the Human trafficking prevalent in the West. While it does include some very specific narratives, it is a big picture book. Well done.
