After reading Siddharth Kara's 2 books on modern-day slavery, I was after some more of the same. This book I found to be quite insightful in a different way but unfortunately, there was too much American politics in it for me.
I wanted to read about real stories, real people - THE SUBJECT - not so much about political wrangling and point scoring and policy.
So I enjoyed some of it, but I found myself skim-reading huge sections that I found pretty boring.

Format: Paperback
Part travelogue, part political and economic history, part journalistic investigation, this book is a shocking and moving introduction to a relatively unreported subject. In its readable pages we hear from the slaves themselves- from Haiti, Amsterdam, India etc as they tell their stories, each one put in its cultural and sociological context by Skinner. Intermingled with this is an examination of the reactions and sanctions from other countries and those appointed to deal with the issue (which in general is generally lots of hot air and no action).

I found the history and political sections quite dense and full of information and I did have to slow down and make sure I was taking it all in, especially the names of the various important players, but the other parts were almost too easy to read, putting in the bluntest terms the horrors of modern day slavery.

This was an excellent book that sums up the situation clearly and concisely and left me feeling angry, shocked and terribly terribly sad.

What a compelling and disturbing read. It should be compulsory reading for every politician or wannabe politician in every country of the world.

Too much American Politics alongside cases in this book for my liking. Started, stopped, started, stopped...... Still not finished as other books are easier to read with case stories without the politics.
