Taking a victims-oriented approach, Human Trafficking, Human Misery examines the criminals and criminal organizations that traffic and exploit their victims. The author focuses on the different groups of victims as well as the various forms of and markets for trafficking, many of which remain overlooked because of the emphasis on sex trafficking. She also explores less frequently discussed forms of trafficking-in organs, child soldiers, mail-order brides, and adoption, as well as the use of the Internet in trafficking. Drawing on her field experiences from various parts of the world, the author deepens our understanding of this issue through descriptions of cases in which she was involved or about which she learned in the course of her travels. Together with insightful analysis, these stories reveal the true nature of human trafficking and illustrate the extent of its reach and harm.
