Editorial Reviews


"The issue of modern child slavery is plagued with self-aggrandizement, shoddy research, and sensationalism. Child slavery now is a powerful antidote to this trend. Gary Craig brings together real experts and deep thinkers to carry our understanding of this crime far beyond sad stories and emotional appeals. This book is an intellectual toolbox for liberation. If you are a serious abolitionist you need this book." Dr. Kevin Bales, President and Co-Founder, Free the Slaves "This wide-ranging book argues convincingly for a systematic approach to ending child slavery. It is a major contribution to the academic understanding of child slavery worldwide necessary for ending slavery in all its contemporary facets." Christien van den Anker, Reader in Politics, University of West of England, Bristol " a major contribution to the academic understanding of child slavery worldwide." Deidre Horgan in Community Development
