Slavery remains rampant worldwide. It is estimated that more than 27m slaves exist today, ranging from prostitutes in London to indentured workers in Burma. This popularly written but carefully researched volume has been comprehensively updated. It includes a chapter on different forms of contemporary slavery, a chapter on the Christian roots of the anti-slavery movement, and three detailed case studies, on Sudan, Burma and Uganda. This 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 a important chapter on action readers can take.
