This is superb but shocking retelling of events that actually take place in Cambodia. As children as young as 5 are sold in to sex slavery, this book retells how IJM (International Justice Mission)help rescue them as well as generations of families that have been forced to be slaves. An eye-opening read. I would recommend this book to all.

Important issue that needs exposure 12 Feb. 2005
By Jason Joyner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book is not sensationalism or extremist. It is the critical story of the types of abuses that go on around the world. There is still slavery in much of the world, and it is inexcusable for people to ignore it. It focuses on a specific episode of child sex trafficking in Cambodia, but it touches on forced labor, kidnapping, and other issues throughout the book. One reviewer falsely claims it is anti-prostitution. The book goes out of its way to show that the people involved were taken against their will and wanted to leave, and that it wasn't prostitution "by choice".

The book is written by the founder and president of International Justice Mission, a group dedicated to establishing justice where there is injustice. They work to not only remove the oppressed from the situation, but to change the culture so that it doesn't reoccur with fresh victims. They lobby, educate, train, work with local law enforcement to enforce LOCAL laws, not to establish an American/Western bias on things.

The writing style is a little disjointed, because it cuts from the main story of the Cambodian intervention to introduce characters important for the mission or to highlight other aspects of slavery. This can distract at times, but it is otherwise well-written. It handles very delicate, sometimes very distasteful material with all the respect it deserves.

Jesus said, "If you did it for one of the least of these, you did it for Me". This is an issue that isn't a Christian or non-Christian issue. Anyone should see that this issue deserves attention and support, by anyone's standard of morality.

Not sensationalism...at all. 29 Mar. 2005
By Bob Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I don't see how anyone can read this book and not see the point. Prostitution is the oldest profession in the world, I don't think Gary is trying to destroy it. That would be impossible. But what this book does go after is the fact that it's not women who are choosing to do this. It is children being kidnapped and brutalized at the hands of those who should be protecting them. I don't care what you say...that is wrong. I would also suggest that you read The Natashas which focuses on the sex trafficing industry in Europe. And for my european friend who commented previously, she might find some interesting insights and realize that just because someone is a prostitute, doesn't mean they are there by choice. Some are, most aren't. It just makes me sick to know that there are true battles and struggles going on, and when someone actually tries to make a difference when no one else will, others criticize them. MSNBC also has a video report on this kind of thing they did a few years back on their website. How can it be sensationalism? No one ever wants to talk about it. This is a worthwhile read.

If you are interested in women's rights in general, Princess Sultana, Princess Sultana's Daughters, and Princess Sultana's Circle are also all very good reads and insights into Saudi Arabia and how women are treated.

A Must Read. 4 Mar. 2005
By metafiz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I just finished reading this book. Do yourself and the world a favor and read it. Gary Haugen is a Christian, and that does come across in the book. But whether you are a Christian or not, you will be touched and moved by the stories in this book. Ignore the one negative review here (I don't know why "moderate christians" would not agree that selling children into sex slavery is wrong...). Anyway, this is a powerful book. Read it.

Terrible yet captivating 27 Nov. 2006
By Amanda Torres - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Haugen, Gary A. Terrify No More. Nashville, TN. W Publishing Group. 2005.

This riveting book by Gary A. Haugen, founder and president of the International Justice Mission(IJM), first-handedly tells the story of a mission proposed by members of IJM, to rescue child sex slaves from Savy Pak, a city in Cambodia that is infamous for its sex trafficking and sex tourism. IJM is a non-profit organization that fights for justice in a world riddled with injustice. This book is amazing as the reader is placed in the middle of the action. However, the content of the book can be extremely disturbing as one reads of the conditions and terrors that these young children face; but there is an amazing sense of hope that comes through to let the reader know that this is not a hopeless case, there is something that is being done. This book traces chronologically the path that IJM took to rescue a few of the millions of children that are trapped in the sex trade. Photos of the children and the conditions help the reader grasp reality through pictures. The book is geared towards those of the college age and older; an easy read that emphasizes the cause of justice in an unjust world. This book gave me a first hand account of the fight against sex trafficking which is what my senior thesis is discussing, I used this book as a basis to understnd more about the sex trade, and those who fight against it.

Reality shakes up our "comfort." 10 Sept. 2005
By Daniel Walton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
IJM (International Justice Mission) is a non-profit organization with a heart to see Justice done in all the earth. This book is a combination of biographical descriptions of the group and the key individuals that make it up, interwoven with an account of one of their ventures which ended up in breaking up some brothel rings of forced minor prostitution. They go into the world, and use existing government law, and with the local governments, to empower a government to see why justice and enforcing their own laws are morally and politically right and expedient. As for their own motivation, they remark that the Church as a whole, and society, has done Ok as far as mercy and evangelism go; but that we (Christians) have passed over, ignored, seemingly not seen, the issue of Justice. The book is pointed, painfully clear, and compassionately zealous to reach out to be doing acts of Justice for the glory of God and the good of mankind.
