Produktbeschreibung
This book by a respected "Financial Times" journalist exposes the enormos scale of contemporary slavery. From cleaning to construction, from agriculture to domestic work, every day migrant laborers are exploited and enslaved. Shelley shows that current unprecedented flows of migrant workers are a direct result of economic liberalization.

Shelley argues that even governments, keen to protect big business, are complicit in this exploitation; their "law and order" approach on immigration being part of this complicity.
