Editorial Reviews

Review

"By reading Le Breton’s fascinating story of exploitation we are carried into the invisible chain of slavery which holds human beings in bondage not only in Brazil, but in many countries, even London, Paris and New York. By entering into others’ lives we commit ourselves, even in a small way, to eradicating a practice which governments have condemned but have so far failed to remove."

"A well-balanced investigation that shows us slavery in the Amazon in a personal way, from the perspective of the actors. No group is branded or unfairly treated, and we see a picture of a society struggling with the challenges of development."

Format: Paperback
Binka Le Breton is an Englishwoman who has lived in Brazil many years. She knows the country and the language perfectly and for that reason she is able to take us where few journalists or investigators have gone. She is also brave, some of the situations she writes about were dangerous. She put herself in danger because she was committed to explosing the slavery that supplies products into the Braziliam economy and that are exported from there into our lives - wood, beef, steel and so on. This book is especially good at giving you a feel for life in the different forms of slavery in Brazil, Le Breton is a natural story-teller. This is not a heavy or academic text, it is a very good read.

There is no one more more qualified to write about forced labour, human trafficking, modern slavery and labour migration in Brazil than Binka Le Breton. It is a required book in my core course, "Contemporary Slavery & Human Trafficking." This book not only takes us through the entire process of those workers trapped by a system of "enganche" (hooking), which is a widespread system of recruitment whereby workers receive wage advances from intermediaries which cannot be repaid, but does it in a thoroughly readable manner. Ms. Breton is also the President and Co-Founder of the Iracambi Atlantic Rainforest Research Centre in Brazil and has worked tirelessly on issues of sustainability. She understand very well the interaction between issues of forced labour, poverty, economic sustainability and the politics of land reform. She has written two other wonderful books that I would highly recommend: "Voice from the Amazon" (1993) and "The Greatest Gift: The Courageous Life and Martyrdom of Sister Dorothy Stang" (2008). For those who have become familiar with the work of this remarkable woman, and those who want to know how it all started, I recommend her memoir, "Where the Road Ends: A Home in the Brazilian Rainforest" (2010).

While the text was groundbreaking and is now still good, I recommend Bretons more recent texts over it
