This Immoral Trade: Slavery in the 21st Century
Baroness Caroline Cox and Dr. John Marks
At least 27 million men, women and children are enslaved today, ranging from prostitutes in London to indentured
workers in Myanmar (formerly Burma). The statistics of modern day slavery are shocking but behind each statistic is a human being—a man, woman or child—and behind each human being is a family and a community which has been devastated or destroyed. Real life experiences of former slaves are presented. This popularly written but well researched volume includes chapters on the causes of slavery, on the history of the practise, on different forms of contemporary slavery and on the Christian roots of the anti-slavery movement; and three shocking case studies from Sudan, Burma and Uganda. The book demands the attention of all who would seek to follow in the footsteps of Wilberforce and to be the change they want to see in the world.
