9780710204752: Slavery in the Twentieth Century
From Library Journal:

Sawyer, a leader in the Anti-Slavery Society, provides a forceful treatment of the persistence of slavery in the contemporary world. He presents detailed case studies, including apartheid, the exploitation of women and children, debt bondage, the persecution of tribal minorities, migrant workers and forced labor, and penal slavery. Sawyer documents these varieties of slavery worldwide: he exempts no region from scrutiny, and, indeed, asserts that the urge to enslave is grounded in human nature, hence universal. Despite this pessimism, the final chapter provides concrete prescriptions for an enhanced U.N. role to curb these practices. Although weak on theory, the volume is an excellent handbook on human rights issues. Highly recommended. Virginia L. Muller, Political Science Dept., Univ. of San Diego
