If you want a true look at human trafficking and want the cold hard truth...read this textbook. This is one of the best overviews to human trafficking that I have encountered--well written, compassionate, informative, and readable. I wish I could give a copy to every single person I know.
The Slave Next Door: Human Trafficing and Slavery in America Today: stars based on 1 user reviews.
In this riveting book, authors and authorities on modern day slavery Kevin Bales and Ron Soodalter expose the disturbing phenomenon of human trafficking and slavery that exists now in the United States. InThe Slave Next Doorwe find that slaves are all around us, hidden in plain sight: the dishwasher in the kitchen of the neighborhood restaurant, the kids on the corner selling cheap trinkets, the man sweeping the floor of the local department store. In these pages we also meet some unexpected slaveholders, such as a 27-year old middle-class Texas housewife who is currently serving a life sentence for offences including slavery. Weaving together a wealth of voices--from slaves, slaveholders, and traffickers as well as from experts, counselors, law enforcement officers, rescue and support groups, and others--this book is also a call to action, telling what we, as private citizens, can do to finally bring an end to this horrific crime.
Kevin Bales, President of Free the Slaves in Washington, D.C. (www.freetheslaves.net) and Professor of Sociology at Roehampton University London in England, is the author of Disposable People: New Slavery in the Global Economy and Understanding Global Slavery (both from UC Press), among other books. Ron Soodalter, historian, folklorist, and lecturer, is the author of Hanging Captain Gordon: The Life and Trial of an American Slave Trader, as well as a featured columnist in America's Civil War magazine. A respected Lincolnian scholar, he serves on the board of the Abraham Lincoln Institute.
