Trafficking & the Global Sex Industry focuses on the
international trafficking of women and children for forced labor
and prostitution. The essays create a link from country to country,
demonstrating the worldwide nature of the problem. Expertly written
and well researched, this collection gives the reader a clearer
understanding of the problem of human trafficking and the actions
being taken to combat it.
This collection provides an important contribution to an emerging field of scholarship.
