Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"Fast on the heels of the State Department's annual report on human trafficking comes this brief but frightening look at a $12-billion-a-year global industry. It's essentially a clip job — King's research into today's slave trade is based on remarks by concerned politicians, news stories and prior academic works, as well as on an exhaustive, chapter-long recap of the aforementioned 2003 Trafficking in Persons Report — but it is a valuable compilation of stories and statistics. A brief look at the history of slavery gives an overview of bondage in the Greco-Roman empire and a timeline of the African slave trade. Short recitations of trafficking case studies — a 14-year-old Thai girl whose promised 'good job' turned out to be prostitution, dozens of Peruvian nationals forced to work in factories and turn their wages over to a Long Island family — serve as illustrative but cursory examples. The information here, though cobbled together from prior sources, is inherently thought-provoking and is set forth clearly if inelegantly. Those seeking a quick course in the deplorable milieu of modern slave trafficking will find King's volume useful. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information, Inc.)
