This is a fairly easy read as a starting point to learn more about slavery today. The book gives a broad overview of slavery by taking the reader to various parts of the world a chapter at a time. Batstone gives both a personal and general view of the slavery problem in a particular region. You meet victims of slavery up close and read what it’s like to be in their shoes, as well as pull back and see some of the patterns, causes, statistics. In addition, Batstone follows a few of the heroes of today’s anti-slavery movement, and shows you what’s being done to fight human trafficking in various places, why it’s difficult, but also why it’s a winnable battle.
