Summary
  • "In this riveting book, authors and authorities on modern day slavery Kevin Bales and Ron Soodalter expose the disturbing phenomenon of human trafficking and slavery that exists now in the United States. In 'The Slave Next Door ' we learn that slaves are all around us, hidden in plain sight: the dishwasher in the kitchen of the neighborhood restaurant, the kids on the corner selling cheap trinkets, the man sweeping the floor of the local department store. In these pages we also meet some unexpected slaveholders, such as a 27-year old middle-class Texas housewife who is currently serving a life sentence for offenses including slavery. Weaving together a wealth of voices--those of slaves, slaveholders, and traffickers as well as from experts, counselors, law enforcement officers, rescue and support groups, and others--this book is also a call to action, telling what we, as private citizens, can do to finally bring an end to this horrific crime"--From book jacket
  • "An informative call to action...with a helpful emphasis on how ordinary individuals can recognize and report coecive situations, creating a humane and helpful primer on how to sever the links that create and hide human bondage"--Publishers Weekly
  • "The Slave Next Door exposes slavery in today's America in all its forms, and sounds a call to arms to government, corporations, and private citizens alike" --Kerry Kennedy, founder, Robert F. Kennedy center for human rights
