Disposable People: New Slavery in the Global Economy

by

Disposable People: New Slavery in the Global Economy Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Slavery is illegal throughout the world, yet more than twenty-seven million people are still trapped in one of history's oldest social institutions. Kevin Bales's disturbing story of contemporary slavery reaches from Pakistan's brick kilns and Thailand's brothels to various multinational corporations. His investigations reveal how the tragic emergence of a "new slavery" is inextricably linked to the global economy. This completely revised edition includes a new preface.

All of the author's royalties from this book go to fund antislavery projects around the world.

About the Author

Kevin Bales is director of Free the Slaves, Washington DC, and professor of sociology at the University of Surrey Roehampton, England.
