Audible Editor Reviews

This audiobook is a thoroughly researched introduction to the subject of modern slavery, an issue that, tragically, persists more than one might think. Listeners will reevaluate their understanding of today's social reality after finishing this audio. Presented by Andrea Powell in an articulate, engaging manner, the book informs listeners of the extent to which modern slavery is a problem worldwide, breaking it down by region, as well as by the types of slavery that persist. The audiobook is based on research, incorporating firsthand accounts that are both difficult to bear and important to hear. Information is presented calmly and clearly, so listeners are left inspired to take action in whatever way they can in the name of social justice.


What the Critics Say

"A concise dismissal of the comforting myth that slavery is a thing of the past." (Aidan McQuade, Director of Slavery International)
"What is needed is nothing less than a new abolition movement, led by campaigners as determined as Douglass or Wilberforce. This timely and important book is its rallying call." (The Times)
"A dazzling work of scholarship and protest, a clarion call that will, like the abolitionist literature of the 18th and 19th centuries, awaken people to the dehumanizing effects of global capitalism. Bales, Trodd, and Williamson are leading the way in the effort to end modern slavery." (John Stauffer, Harvard University professor of English and American Literature and African American Studies, award-winning author, and one of the world's leading scholars of antislavery movements)

Well done.

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.
