Award-winning journalist David Batstone reveals the story of a new generation of 21st-century abolitionists and their heroic campaign to put an end to human bondage.

In his accessible and inspiring book, Batstone carefully weaves the narratives of activists and those in bondage in a way that not only raises awareness of the modern-day slave trade, but also serves as a call to action.

With the recent 200th anniversary of the climax of the 19th-century abolitionist movement, the world pays tribute to great visionary figures such as William Wilberforce of the United Kingdom and American Frederick Douglass for their remarkable strides toward framing slavery as a moral issue that people of good conscience could not tolerate. This anniversary served not only as a commemorative date for battles won against slavery, but also as a reminder that slavery and bondage still persist in the 21st century.

An estimated 27 million people around the globe suffer in situations of forced labor and commercial sexual exploitation from which they cannot free themselves. Trafficking in people has become increasingly transnational in scope and highly lucrative. After illegal drug sales and arms trafficking, human trafficking is today the third most profitable criminal activity in the world, generating $31 billion annually. As many as half of all those trafficked worldwide for sex and domestic slavery are children under 18 years of age. Download and start listening now!

    " This book is incredibly sobering, informative, and well written... the only thing that could have been more moving is if Lou Engle was reading it out loud to me...(let the Lou fans understand) "

    " This book inspired me to not-always try and get the absolute cheapest price on everything and to be more generous with what I have.. Maybe my pennypinching ways are enabling slavery to exist in a chinese factory somewhere. Because of this book, I've started buying fair-trade coffee and chocolate in the hopes that the demand will grow and the farmers that grow these commodities will have some sort of living wage. I think our American obliviousness to where our food and goods come from likely ends up enslaving the poor while the West stays wealthy and prosperous. "

    " incredibly eye-opening to the system of human-trafficking. there are a lot of personal stories of survivers that will motivate you to do something about the problem. "
