About

Overview

This book provides a sobering look at modern-day slavery—which includes sex trafficking, domestic servitude, and other forms of forced labor—and documents the development of the modern-day anti-slavery movement, from early survivor voices to grassroots activism, to the passage of U.S. and international anti-slavery laws.
