Summary
  • "In his 1999 book, Disposable People, Kevin Bales brought to light the shocking fact of modern slavery and described how, nearly two hundred years after the slave trade was abolished (legal slavery would have to wait another fifty years), global slavery stubbornly persists. In Ending Slavery, Bales again grapples with the struggle to end this ancient evil and presents the ideas and insights that can finally lead to slavery's extinction. Recalling his own involvement in the antislavery movement, he recounts a personal journey in search of the solution and explains how governments and citizens can build a world without slavery."--Publisher's description
  • "Shocking, saddening, angering, and inspiring ... Reveals in full a side of the global market many Americans simply do not know about and the unthinkable injustices that could be taking place in their local communities."--Publishers Weekly
  • "A call to action ... You don't have to wait to move the United Nations to make a difference. You can do something right now. But first you have to be aware."--San Francisco Chronicle
