Only a handful of slaves are reached and freed each year, but the authors offer hope for the future with a global blueprint that proposes to end slavery in our lifetime.
This is what it says it is. It is a description of slavery as it exist in the world today. Obviously written by abolitionist, it chronicles everything from to the debt slavery so common in India to the Human trafficking prevalent in the West. While it does include some very specific narratives, it is a big picture book. Well done.
