Description
"Once again, Kevin Bales and Ron Soodalter make us confront a tragic reality--there are as many as 27 million people trapped in modern slavery worldwide. In this book, we hear the voices of survivors and those who are fighting every day for freedom."--Congressman John Conyers, Jr., Chair of the House Judiciary Committee"Most Americans believe that slavery in our country ended with the Emancipation Proclamation. They are wrong. As Kevin Bales and Ron Soodalter document in this excellent volume, human bondage is a reality for thousands of children, women and men living in the United States. The Slave Next Door exposes slavery in today's America in all its forms, and sounds a call to arms to government, corporations, and private citizens alike."--Kerry Kennedy, Founder, Robert F. Kennedy Center for Human Rights"This is a book to make you angry. From Florida field workers who pick some of the fruits and vegetables we eat to prisoners in China who make desk lamps we can buy at Wal-Mart, Bales and Soodalter show us the manifold ways that unfree labor is woven into the American economy. And, most important, they show us what we can do to stop it."--Adam Hochschild, author of Bury the Chains and King Leopold's Ghost
