    In his book, Bales recounts how the escaped slave and abolitionist, Frederick Douglass, was invited to give a keynote speech for a large Fourth of July celebration in New York in 1852.Instead of delivering a rousing speech about the greatness of living in freedom, Douglass basically asked how we can be proud of our freedom if there were still slaves in existence And while most of us think of the word slavery in terms of something that happened a long time ago, it actually still exists today In his book, Bales recounts how the escaped slave and abolitionist, Frederick Douglass, was invited to give a keynote speech for a large Fourth of July celebration in New York in 1852.Instead of delivering a rousing speech about the greatness of living in freedom, Douglass basically asked how we can be proud of our freedom if there were still slaves in existence And while most of us think of the word slavery in terms of something that happened a long time ago, it actually still exists t...

    It is not without some shortcomings, but definitely a book people should read The testimony of modern day slaves should move people to action I had only two issues with the book The first is that it is in need of updating There is a new preface on the 2012 edition but that is not enough Also, as a historian I take issue with some of the distinctions he makes between the new and the old slavery Much of what he said was new, was true of slavery in Brazil during the colonial period and ev It is not without some shortcomings, but definitely a book people should read The testimony of modern day slaves should move people to action I had only two issues with the book The first is that it is in need of updating There is a new preface on the 2012 edition but that is not enough Also, as a historian I take issue with some of the distinctions he makes between the new and the old slavery Much of what he said was new, was true of slavery in...

    If a friend hadn t invited me to a discussion group on this book, I never would have picked it up Somehow the author managed to interview current and former slaves from Mauritania to Paris, retell their stories, contextualize the economic systems that slavery exists in, and still not get bogged down in the darkness Or maybe that s due to the discussion with other compassionate, engaged readers Overall, solid investigative journalism about a topic most people don t know exists note skim thr If a friend hadn t invited me to a discussion group on this book, I never would have picked it up Somehow the author managed to interview current and former slaves from Mauritania to Paris, retell their stories, contextualize the economic systems that slavery exists in, and still not get bogged down in the darkness Or maybe that s due to the discussion with other compassionate, engaged readers Overall, solid investigative journalism about a topic most people don t kn...

    This is an important book Despite its defects I can highly recommend it to pretty much everyone because the entire world would benefit from its being read I greatly admire Bales for his part in spreading the word on modern day slavery, and I plan on doing my part by telling people and passing the book on to others.The most interesting chapters are the first two on prostitution in Thailand and old slavery in Mauritania The shock value probably has a lot to do with it, as well as the dumbfoun This is an important book Despite its defects I can highly recommend it to pretty much everyone because the entire world would benefit from its being read I greatly admire Bales for his part in spreading the word on modern day slavery, and I plan on doing my part by telling people and passing the book on to others.The most interesting chapters are the first two on prostitution in Thailand and old slavery in Mauritania The shock value probably has a lot to do with it, as well as the dumbfounding surprise of learning about the vestiges of ancient slavery still...
