Editorial Reviews

Review

Stephanie Hepburn and Rita J. Simon make an effective case that while the specifics of trafficking vary depending on its focal point, there are certain constants. In their review of a range of countries, they demonstrate that economics, geography, civil unrest, societal inequality, and gender disparities play a major role in how trafficking manifests itself. -- Christa Stewart, New York State Office of Human Trafficking, Office of Temporary Disability Assistance

I recommend this comprehensive study to anyone wanting to understand the fight against the modern-day slavetrade. The book stands apart by augmenting nation-by-nation accounts of trafficking realities with critiques of existing local anti-trafficking measures and consideration of local obstacles. Supported by diverse sources, the authors set forth clear policy recommendations to combat trafficking. -- Lori J. Johnson, staff attorney, Farmworker Unit, Legal Aid of North Carolina

Human trafficking and sexual exploitation are complex issues which differ in nature from country to country, and very often accounts of human trafficking are based on anecdotal evidence. Hepburn and Simon managed to delve beneath the surface of policies and legislation within the various countries that they studied by involving those who are involved at a grass root level and have come up with a fascinating account of these practices in the various countries covered in their book. -- Carol Bews, assistant director, Johannesburg Child Welfare Society

This volume demonstrates ways in which global migration policies and programs facilitate human trafficking by focusing on law enforcement rather than promoting uniform labor standards. Its broad focus helps readers compare practices among countries and understand the transnational impact of national legislation and policies on human trafficking around the globe. -- Gretchen Kuhner, author of the American Bar Association's Human Trafficking Assessment Tool Report

Immensely well-documented and useful., Kirkus Reviews

an immensely learned and informative piece of work, much needed to prod and set aright the misperceptions and lethargy that beset this disturbing issue. -- John Tirman, Washington Post

Superior and well-written, this is the rare resource that is both scholarly and approachable, making it a must-read, Library Journal --This text refers to the paperback edition.
