Editorial Reviews


"This highly focused encyclopedia offers useful source material for those interested in human rights issues in the modern age. It is recommended for the general public and high school students seeking additional information or as a starting point for research." - Library Journal

"Rodriguez reminds us in his expansive, enlightening look at more modern forms of exploitation that encompasses more than 27 million individuals, slavery has more of an impact on our own time than at any other time in the past. . . . The variety of primary documents is one of the great strengths of the work, drawing from a rich tapestry of attempts by both governments and the private sector to battle all forms of illegal labor exploitation. . . . Overall, this is a solid work of vast importance that works well in supporting the existing social-science curriculum and could become a go-to resource for AP classes addressing the socioeconomic issues that arise in the era of globalization." - Booklist
