At least 27m men, women and children are enslaved today, ranging from prostitutes in London to indentured workers in 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 have been devastated or destroyed. "As real-life experiences often speak louder than words, we introduce some of the hundreds of former slaves whom one of the authors has met personally. Great care is taken to ensure the validity and authenticity of the evidence." This popularly written but carefully researched volume includes chapters on the causes of slavery, on the history of the practice, 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.
