Product Description


"General readers, all undergraduate students, and above."




"Human trafficking is an ugly crime. Its brutalized victims generate vast profits, and many of them are being used and abused in the cities and towns where we live. Human trafficking is also a hidden crime. Governments, human rights groups, and all the rest of us, are struggling to understand how it fits into the lives of our communities and economies. Now we have help: Alexis Aronowitz has written a lucid and concise introduction to human trafficking. Based on impeccable research and years of experience, she shines a light on the modern slave trade. This book is perfect for student and educational use, or for anyone wanting a clear and unbiased understanding of human trafficking today." (Dr. Kevin Bales
Academic and world reknowned expert on modern-day slavery
Author of best-seller, Disposable People
President of Free the Slaves)

The Professor Jan. 29 2012
By NOLa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is an excellent book for anyone interested in understanding the complexities and nuances of human trafficking. Readers will understand what drives and facilitiates human trafficking, why it is so difficult to find and identify victims and why we are so limited in our ability to successfully prosecute traffickers. The international perspective shows that this crime differs in various regions of the world. The discussion on labor trafficking and other forms of human trafficking for organ harvesting, mail-order brides, child soldiers and sex tourism sets this book apart from other more traditional books which focus almost exclusively on trafficking for sexual exploitaiton. A fascinating read.
