Description of This Immoral Trade: Slavery in the 21st Century by Caroline Cox

This groundbreaking and authoritative resource reporting on the state of modern-day worldwide slavery and human trafficking has now been thoroughly updated.

It is estimated that more than 27 million slaves exist today, ranging from prostitutes in London and New York to indentured workers in Burma. The statistics are shocking. But behind each statistic is a human being—a man, woman, or child; and behind each human being is a family and a community which have been devastated or destroyed. This Immoral Trade shares the stories of some of these.

Including chapters on the causes of slavery, the history and different forms of contemporary slavery, the Christian roots of the anti-slavery movement, and three detailed case studies—on Sudan, Burma, and Uganda—the new edition also includes a special chapter on the Dalits of India and a section on human trafficking, both with arresting and disturbing case histories. It concludes with an important chapter on action readers can take.

Sharply written and carefully researched, This Immoral Trade is a powerful resource that will spur thoughtful readers to a deeper understanding of this global threat.

“This book demands the attention of all who would seek to follow in the footsteps of Wilberforce.”
—Dr. John Sentamu, Archbishop of York
