“Human trafficking is not an issue of the left or right, blue states or red states, but a great moral tragedy we can unite to stop . . . Not for Sale is a must-read to see how you can join the fight.” —Jim Wallis, author of God's Politics

“David Batstone is a heroic character.” —Bono

In the revised and updated version of this harrowing yet deeply inspirational exposé, award-winning journalist David Batstone gives the most up-to-date information available on the $31 billion human trafficking epidemic. With profiles of twenty-first century abolitionists like Thailand’s Kru Nam and Peru’s Lucy Borja, Batstone tells readers what they can do to stop the modern slave trade. Like Kevin Bales’ Disposable People and Ending Slavery, or E. Benjamin Skinner’s A Crime So Monstrous, Batstone’s Not for Sale is an informative and necessary manifesto for universal freedom.

Quotes & Awards

  • Not for Sale breaks my heart and gives me hope; here we read how people are heroically coming forward to fight the modern scourge of slavery. God is in the freedom business—whether in ancient Egypt or in modern South Africa or anywhere else where there is injustice or oppression. God calls us to continue this great liberation effort, and Batstone’s book helps us do just that.”

    Desmond Tutu, recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize

  • “One hundred and fifty years after legal slavery was abolished, the illegal trafficking of humans is all around us but either hidden or silently embedded in everyday products and services. Every American should read this book before shopping or traveling.”

    Michael Kieschnick, cofounder and president, Working Assets

  • Not for Sale not only informs, it challenges each reader to take action. My students were appalled to learn of the prevalence of human trafficking around the world, but this insight inspired many of them to begin working on a local, national, or global level to bring about change. Batstone will inspire any student.”

    Stephanie M. Foote, director, Academic Success Center, University of South Carolina Aiken

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Carol | 2/3/2014

    " It's hard to say I really liked this book because the subject matter is so disturbing. It is, however, a compelling book which opens your eyes to the trafficking of people, mainly children and women. It's easy to ignore the issue of modern day slavery because it is so easy to cover up. The poor who have no voice are taken to foreign cities where they have no connections, and consquently no means to escape from oppressive situations. It's an issue that occurs in America as well as the brothels of South East Asia, the child armies of Uganada, and the streets of South America. "

    " It was hard to believe that the things going on in this book were actual events. You don't think of the world being like that. It was almost like reading a novel. I have a copy if you want to read it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Erika | 1/26/2014

    " I read this for a class I took about human trafficking. Very informative, very touching (and true) stories. But it did get boring at times and I will admit that I only finished it because it was required for my class. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Jolynna Addink | 1/25/2014

    " Every individual remotely interested in human rights and social justice should read this book and DO SOMETHING in response to what you learn. For people around the world, it IS a matter of life or death. "
