Overview

Not for Sale: The Return of the Global Slave Trade--and How We Can Fight It by David Batstone

“Human trafficking is not an issue of the left or right, blue states or red states, but a great moral tragedy we can unite to stop . . . Not for Sale is a must-read to see how you can join the fight.” —Jim Wallis, author of God's Politics

“David Batstone is a heroic character.” —Bono

In the revised and updated version of this harrowing yet deeply inspirational exposé, award-winning journalist David Batstone gives the most up-to-date information available on the $31 billion human trafficking epidemic. With profiles of twenty-first century abolitionists like Thailand’s Kru Nam and Peru’s Lucy Borja, Batstone tells readers what they can do to stop the modern slave trade. Like Kevin Bales’ Disposable People and Ending Slavery, or E. Benjamin Skinner’s A Crime So Monstrous, Batstone’s Not for Sale is an informative and necessary manifesto for universal freedom.

I highly recommend this book, in fact, I would go as far as to say it is imperative people read this book. It is an eye opening look at the epidemic level human trafficking (in order to feed to sex trade)and human slavery (slave labor in manufacturing) has risen to. The author takes us to various regions in the world (including the United States!) where human trafficking and the sex trade operates. He not only exposes the region, the tactics and the victims in these regions, but he also highlights a modern day abolitionist working in that area who is making a difference in the lives of these victims. It's both heartbreaking and inspirational. It will make you want to stand up and do something. Modern day slave labor is higher than it was at the height of the African slave trade! I've often wondered as I have read about Harriet Tubman or Wilberforce, if I would have that kind of integrity and courage if faced with the same situation. In the face of unspeakable cruelty and exploitation would I stand up and do something? David Batstone has as he penned this book and reading it will inspire you to stand up as well.

I reas this book while doing a project on human trafficking. I didn't get the information I thought I was going to get. Instead I got something else. I got many personal accounts and a better look into the lives of those who are kept captive. It's a really good book but not for those who are overly sensitive.

This book opens your eyes to the reality of slavery & human trafficking that still exists in the world today. There are abolitionists out there fighting so hard to free people. It's heartbreaking to know there's forced labor in India, child soldiers in Uganda, human trafficking for sex slavery in Europe, Asia & USA. The Not For Sale Campaign partners with other organizations out there to stand up, do something & make a difference.
