Most teenagers are familiar with the concept of slavery from studying history. However, many are unaware that slavery still flourishes around the world today, even within the borders of the United States. In fact, the modern slave trade is a lucrative criminal enterprisethe third most profitable in the world after drug trafficking and the illegal sale of arms and munitions. It affects millions of people who are forced to work by threat of mental and physical abuse, in inhuman conditions, for little or no pay. This book illuminates this modern-day tragedy for teen readers with clear explanations and examples drawn from around the world. Current efforts to combat the problem and to provide reparations are discussed, and the author includes practical suggestions to help teens act as modern-day abolitionists.
