Slavery remains rampant worldwide, despite the celebrations surrounding the bicentenary of its abolition in Britain. At least 27m men, women and children are enslaved today, ranging from prostitutes in London to indentured workers in Burma. This popularly written but carefully researched volume includes a chapter on different forms of contemporary slavery, a chapter on the Christian roots of the anti-slavery movement, and three detailed case studies, on Sudan, Burma and Uganda. It will conclude with a important chapter on action readers can take.
Caroline Anne Cox, Baroness Cox, FRCN is a cross-bench member of the British House of Lords. She also is the founder and CEO of an organisation called Humanitarian Aid Relief Trust. She has campaigned for humanitarian causes, particularly relating to disability.
