Slavery remains rampant worldwide, despite the celebrations surrounding the bicentenary next year 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 chapters on different forms of contemporary slavery, on the Christian roots of the anti-slavery movement and on the roots of Islamic slavery, and three detailed case studies, on Sudan, Burma and Uganda. It concludes with an
important chapter on action readers can take.
