Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Phyllis Kennemer
People are considered to be a valuable resource. Unfortunately, people-trafficking is the fastest-growing and the second most profitable industry (just behind drug trade) in the world. Whereas the labor force provides important services, many people are forced to work for no pay or very low wages. About 80 percent of trafficking victims are women and children. They are moved across borders and within their own countries and the criminals responsible are rarely caught. Historical perspectives of slavery and other forms of forced labor are followed with accounts of illicit activity continuing into the present. These include abductions of girls into prostitution and of babies for illegal adoptions. Catching and prosecuting people traffickers is difficult and success depends upon strong laws, properly trained police, and international cooperation. Additional information is presented in Case Studies and inset boxes entitled "Fact File," "Busted," and "On Target." Photographs in both black and white and in color contribute to the understanding of the text. Includes a glossary, a bibliography (recommended books and websites), and an index. A good reference source for middle and high school students. Part of the "Inside Crime" series. Reviewer: Phyllis Kennemer, Ph.D.
