While many believe that the slave trade ended some time ago, there are still over 27 million people held in bondage today. In addition to chattel and sex slaves throughout Africa, parts of Asia, and many other parts of the world, cases of human trafficking have been documented in affluent neighborhoods in the United States. Slavery isn't history. Enslaved: True Stories of Modern Day Slavery (Palgrave, 2006), edited by Jesse Sage and Liora Kasten, (introduction by Gloria Steinem), is a collection of first-hand accounts of slavery in the twenty-first century. All proceeds from the sales of this book go towards the programs of the American Anti-Slavery Group. Also see Not For Sale .
