Publisher Comments:

It is a rare set of skills that enable David Batstone to be active as a business entrepreneur, professor and journalist. Batstone is the Executive Editor of Sojourners magazine, the leading voice at the crossroads of politics, business, spirituality and culture. Batstone was also a founding editor of Business 2.0 magazine and a contributor to the New York Times, Wired, the Chicago Tribune, Spin and the San Francisco Chronicle. He is the recipient of two national journalist awards and named the National Endowment for the Humanities Chair at the University of San Francisco for his work in technology and ethics. Gifted as an entrepreneur, Batstone plays an executive role in a niche investment bank operating internationally in the entertainment and technology industries. During the 1980s, he founded and directed a non-governmental agency dedicated to economic development and human rights in Latin America.

Synopsis:

An award-winning journalist profiles the new generation of abolitionists who are fighting today's slave trade — the global human trafficking epidemic — and offers readers practical steps to help end it.

Synopsis:

Human trafficking generates $31 billion annually and enslaves 27 million people around the globe, half of them children under the age of eighteen. Award-winning journalist David Batstone, whom Bono calls "a heroic character," profiles the new generation of abolitionists who are leading the struggle to end this appalling epidemic.

Synopsis:

Award-winning journalist David Batstone reveals the story of a new generation of 21st century abolitionists and their heroic campaign to put an end to human bondage. In his accessible and inspiring book, Batstone carefully weaves the narratives of activists and those in bondage in a way that not only raises awareness of the modern-day slave trade, but also serves as a call to action.

With 2007 bringing the 200th anniversary of the climax of the 19th century abolitionist movement, the world pays tribute to great visionary figures such as William Wilberforce of the United Kingdom and American Frederick Douglass for their remarkable strides toward framing slavery as a moral issue that people of good conscience could not tolerate. This anniversary serves not only as a commemorative date for battles won against slavery, but also as a reminder that slavery and bondage still persist in the 21st century. An estimated 27 million people around the globe suffer in situations of forced labor and commercial sexual exploitation from which they cannot free themselves. Trafficking in people has become increasingly transnational in scope and highly lucrative. After illegal drug sales and arms trafficking, human trafficking is today the third most profitable criminal activity in the world, generating $31 billion annually. As many as half of all those trafficked worldwide for sex and domestic slavery are children under 18 years of age.

Batson has written an engrossing book designed to spur action as we become a new generation of abolitionists, each lending out time, passions, experiences, and skills to the broader network of anti-trafficking, anti-exploitative labour. Moreover, Batson helps us to examine ways in which we are complicit with the modern slave trade just in our role as consumers in the global economy. The personal narratives of slave victims and abolitionists should encourage us all to join this movement and transform society, culture, and the world.
