During the month of February, 2009. There are women in poor countries who have been promised good jobs and a life out of poverty, but they end up as sex slaves in America. There are children in Uganda who are kidnapped and taught to kill and torture grownups as child soldiers. There are more slaves now than in any time in history. And then there are also people who are going to rescue them. These are some of their stories. I strongly recommend downloading this book for free:
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.
