Since the 2005 publication of the highly acclaimed first edition of Trafficking and Prostitution Reconsidered, human trafficking has become virtually a household phrase. This new edition adds vitally important updates related to recent developments. A new introduction considers the term 'sex trafficking' and its growing use amongst feminist researchers. In a new chapter Ratna Kapur looks at changes in anti-trafficking legislation especially under the Obama administration. Jyoti Sanghera reports from her experience as a UN Human Rights commissioner and Bandana Pattanaik examines feminist participatory research on 'trafficking'. The book concludes with a list of relevant websites, organisations, and publications useful for students, researchers, and activists.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This book will play a significant role in resetting the terms of the debate about prostitution
and other forms of sex work. . . . The grounded analysis provided here is a welcome alternative
to the sensationalist stew that pervades mainstream media . . . a collection that 'supports the
humanity, agency, and rights of the poor' while challenging hegemonic trafficking discourse."
-Debi Brock, in Resources for Feminist Research

"Trafficking and Prostitution Reconsidered provides a unique perspective on issues regarding
migration, sex work, and human rights with particular consideration given to a number of
countries in Asia. . . . This book critically assesses and examines the existing international
policies on trafficking, while proposing alternatives for future research and possible
intervention strategies. . . . A comprehensive job of exposing a variety of myths and problems
within the context of sexual exploitation and capitalism."
-Taline Kassabian, in Canadian Journal of Sociology
