"This is a unique book in that the author is both an activist and a scholar. Bales provides original research, and new, up to date information. The book is an important contribution in a field that can be either dry, or sensationalized. Bales avoids this with clear writing and organization, enlivened with examples drawn from life. The book lays out clearly the extent of the problem, and the scholarship is impeccable."—Suzanne Miers, author of Slavery in the Twentieth Century

"Kevin Bales is the world's leading analyst of modern-day slavery. The book provides a fascinating and powerful narrative about this troubling topic, and is extremely well-written and accessible."—Thomas Cushman, Editor-
In-Chief of The Journal of Human Rights
