As technology makes the world more accessible, it is increasingly important to develop a wide perspective on social issues as well as political, environmental, and health issues of global significance. This book provides a truly global perspective on the topic of slavery. Primary sources, including speeches and government documents, join essays from international sources to offer a truly panoramic view. Readers will examine the legacy of slavery, what it is like in modern times, the global problem of sex slavery, and the unfortunate but very real existence of child slavery. Essay sources include the U.S. Department of State and the Integrated Regional Information Network. Essayists include Deep Kisor Datta-Ray, Norimitsu Onishi, Barbara Gunnell, Rosemary Regello, and C. Nana Derby.
