One million people are trafficked into the sex industry each year. In this timely and provocative study, Kathryn Farr documents the macro and micro impact of trafficking women and children into this industry on a global scale. Farr looks not only at the victims themselves, but also at the sex trade's main players, organized crime structure, economic conditions, and role in which various militaries perpetuate its demand. Sex Trafficking can be incorporated into a variety of courses in sociology, social problems, culture and sexuality, history, and women's studies.

For those who do not know a lot about human trafficking, this book gives a great range of research material and statistics. However, it may not be as interesting as some readers would hope to be because of small numer of stories from the victimes of trafficking. Although, for those who are familiar with the issue, it is great source of additional information.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
