This is one of the most vital books of the new century
Slavery does not belong to the past. It lives and breathes in our midst and Rahila Gupta's powerful expose opens a window on this secret world. This is one of the most shocking books you will read about contemporary Britain; that human beings should be treated with such degradation and cruelty is a disgrace we should find unbearable. I hope the author's passion ignites a new anti-slavery campaign. Sign me up
Rahila Gupta's book Enslaved which deals with modern slavery is very timely since it is coming out in the year when we are celebrating the bi-centenary of Wilberforce's Bill to abolish the slave trade. The example he gives should remind us all that the struggle for human rights has to be fought in every generation.
