Overview

The Author Bright Mills is a publisher, a media practitioner, and an IT engineer, who has been following the trend of human trafficking, the modern-day slavery of the twenty-first century criminal industry. He is deeply committed to putting an end to modern-day slavery. His aim is to create awareness about the illicit criminal industry that have lured trafficked victims and subjected them to forced labor and sexual exploitation. His publication emphasizes the activities of human trafficking and some measures to be taken in order to prevent the criminal acts and prosecute traffickers.

The Book Human trafficking is the modern-day form of slavery in the twenty-first century happening across the globe. Approximately 600,000 to 800,000 victims annually are trafficked across international borders worldwide, and between 18,000 and 50,000 of those victims are trafficked into the United States. This estimates include women, men, and children. Traffickers take the advantage of poverty, war, political instability, high rates of unemployment, and natural disasters to exploit impoverished and vulnerable individuals seeking a better life, luring them into forced labor and sexual exploitation. Traffickers generate about $32 billion annually from their criminal industry.

Editorial Reviews

BlueInk Reviews
Their stories, and the others, are all-too-familiar to anyone with even a passing acquaintance with human trafficking and, sadly, do not shock - though the number of countries named (nearly four dozen) does hammer home the breadth of the problem.

Mills follows this with details about the Economic Community of West African States' plan to combat human trafficking, including a numbered list of the group's goals and recommendations. There's no context for the information; these are simply position papers or government handouts and would have been more appropriate for an appendix. The remainder of the book is devoted to often-grainy photographs, along with captions and stand-alone quotes about human trafficking.

Mills' words are direct and simple. Much of the book, though, appears to be a summary of various government documents that often slips into difficult bureaucratese. With only 65 pages, a good portion devoted to this type of unengaging prose, Human Trafficking gives readers a superficial look at the topic, at best. More research and pruning of ineffective material could have made this a much more interesting book, one offering a deeper look at a worldwide tragedy.
