Ending Slavery

Ending Slavery

How We Free Today's Slaves

BY KEVIN BALES
In his 1999 book, Disposable People, British Quaker author Kevin Bales brought to light the shocking fact of modern slavery and described how, nearly two hundred years after the slave trade was abolished (legal slavery would have to wait another fifty years), global slavery stubbornly persists. In Ending Slavery, Bales again grapples with the struggle to end this ancient evil and presents the ideas and insights that can finally lead to slavery's extinction. Recalling his own involvement in the antislavery movement, he recounts a personal journey in search of the solution and explains how governments and citizens can build a world without slavery.

Personal Stories From Today's Slaves

EDITED BY KEVIN BALES AND ZOE TRODD
Boys strapped to carpet looms in India, women trafficked into sex slavery across Europe, children born into bondage in Mauritania, and migrants imprisoned at gunpoint in the U.S. are just a few of the many forms slavery takes in the 21st century. There are 27 million slaves alive today, more than at any point in history, and they are found on every continent except Antarctica. This book contains 95 narratives by slaves and former slaves from around the globe. Told in the slaves' own words, the narratives movingly chronicle the horrors of contemporary slavery, the process of becoming free, and the challenges faced by former slaves as they build a life in freedom.

Understanding Global Slavery

Understanding Global Slavery

A Reader

BY KEVIN BALES
Although slavery is illegal throughout the world, we learned from Kevin Bales's highly praised expos‚, Disposable People: New Slavery in the Global Economy, that more than twenty-seven million people are still trapped in bondage. With this new volume, Bales, the leading authority on modern slavery, looks beyond the specific instances of slavery described in his last book to explore broader themes about slavery's causes, its continuation, and how it might be ended. Written to raise awareness and deepen understanding, and touching again on individual lives around the world, this book tackles head-on one of the most urgent and difficult problems facing us today.
