"Nineteenth-century slave narratives compelled changes in social mores and international law when readers were confronted with the stories of the human beings behind the economy of slavery. The editors of this collection hope for similar reactions as they present modern-day slave narratives from people held against their will as sex slaves, house servants, laborers, and migrant workers...A heartbreaking, eye-opening account."--Vanessa Bush, Booklist
"Just as 19th century slave narratives forced readers to admit the humanity of slaves, the stories in Enslaved force us to admit that slavery still exists."
