Synopsis

Illegal, inhuman, and impervious to recession, there is one trade that continues to thrive, just out of sight. The international sex trade criss-crosses the entire globe, a sinister network made up of criminal masterminds, local handlers, corrupt policemen, wilfully blind politicians, eager consumers, and countless hapless women and children. In this ground-breaking work of investigative reporting, the celebrated journalist Lydia Cacho follows the trail of the traffickers and their victims from Mexico to Turkey, Thailand to Iraq, Georgia to the UK, to expose the trade's hidden links with the tourist industry, internet pornography, drugs and arms smuggling, the selling of body organs, money laundering, and even terrorism. This is an underground economy in which a sex slave can be bought for the price of a gun, but Cacho's powerful first-person interviews with mafiosi, pimps, prostitutes, and those who managed to escape from captivity makes it impossible to ignore the terrible human cost of this lucrative exchange. Shocking and sobering, Slavery Inc, is an exceptional book, both for the colossal scope of its enquiry, and for the tenacious bravery with which Cacho pursues the truth.

Lydia Cacho is an internationally admired Mexican journalist-campaigner. She became a cause celebre with her book, Demons of Eden, which exposed a paedophilia ring invovling Mexico's richest businessman, his friend the governor and an array of 'big men'. She took the ring to trial but was jailed and abused herself before winning her argument and her freedom. She is a columnist on El Universal, a prominent feminist activist against violence, and teaches workshops on how to help trafficking victims. She has been named UNESCO World Press Freedom Hero and in 2010 received the PEN International Writer of Courage Prize. http://www.lydiacacho.net/english/
