This Immoral Trade
Full Product Description
Baroness Cox's thoroughly researched, wholly reliable and instantly readable book is a both an authentic first hand account of slavery past and present and a call to action against new and future forms of human trafficking and enslavement.
This is unique volume does not underestimate the importance of Christian faith and practice in the motives and lives of those committed to righting the wrongs of slavery past present and future.
"Including chapters on the causes of slavery, the history and different forms of contemporary slavery, the Christian roots of the anti-slavery movement, and three detailed case studies - on Sudan, Burma, and Uganda, the new edition also includes a special chapter on the Dalits of India and a section on human trafficking, both with arresting and disturbing case histories. It concludes with an important chapter on action readers can take."
From William Wilberforce to the campaigners of today, the author examines the slave trade from the point of view of the slaves themselves and not just from the morally detached high ground of the 'free' world.
Looking in depth at the means of entrapment, trafficking and enslavement, you will hear the voices and experiences of the silenced and hitherto voiceless as they cry freedom and look for the new Wilberforce who will make known their plight and set them free.
"It is estimated that more than 27 million slaves exist today, ranging from prostitutes in London and New York to indentured workers in Burma. The statistics are shocking. But behind each statistic is a human being - a man, woman, or child; and behind each human being is a family and a community which have been devastated or destroyed. This Immoral Trade shares the stories of some of these."
This is an emotional read. The facts alone call out to the heart, and when combined with personal accounts, the outrage tears at the very soul. If you really care about the human suffering, waste and misery caused by present-day slavery, read This Immoral Trade.

"This Immoral Trade was emotionally difficult to read. Rape, murder, and bondage cause the victim's voices to cry out from within its pages and grip our heart. If you can get through the documented information and photos without tears of compassion, or are able to stay the screams of outrage that rise in your throat at the injustices being carried out every minute of every day, then you probably don't deserve the precious freedom you are now enjoying . . . . This is a 5-star, thought provoking read." - Jan Warren(armchairinterviews.com)
"This book demands the attention of all who would seek to follow in the footsteps of Wilberforce." - Dr. John Sentamu, Archbishop of York.
