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 book besides being informative can be used as a reference source to someone wishing to explore the topic further. The chapter structure enables the reader to more easily compare and contrast the nations' statistics, laws, treatment of victims and traffickers. I also found it interesting that some laws, designed to deter Trafficking, may actually prove to be advantageous to traffickers' who take of advantage of “Open Border” immigration.
A wonderful book, very relevant to our times. I highly recommend it.
This book is a look into the world of human trafficking. It looks at the policies of 24 countries (including the US) regarding this issue as well as look at who's being trafficked into the countries profiled & where they end up (either in the sex business or as manual labor), how the trafficked people are treated by their captors as well as law enforcement & how the law treats traffickers. The book also looks into rather of not the profiled country's a hub for under-age sex tourism. Nearly every chapter has cases/accounts from those who were victims of what is often called "modern-day slavery."
While I personally felt that this book could be better, it still does a good job covering this subject. I did enjoyed reading it & it is well researched (with over 100 pages of references, it have better be). While not without its flaws, this is still a good book on the issue on human trafficking & how the countries of the world looks at it.
