    Long after slavery was officially
    abolished, the practice not only continues but thrives. An estimated 40 million
    people are modern-day slaves, more than ever before in human history. Whether
    they are women in electronics or apparel sweatshops, children in brick kilns or
    on cocoa farms, men trapped in bonded labour working on construction sites, or
    girls forced into domestic servitude or sex work, millions of people are forced
    to perform labour through the use of force, intimidation or deceit.

    Modern slavery is an
    integral part of the global economy. It even becomes part of our daily lives
    when we use or buy products that are made through exploitative labour
    practices. In a world of growing inequality, consumers and business are both
    part of the problem and the solution. While we have all become accustomed to
    fast fashion and cheap consumer goods, we must take responsibility for
    exploitation at different points along complex supply chains. This important
    book examines slavery in the modern world and outlines ways it can be stopped.
