Reviews

"This book offers broad coverage of the topic which is good for a number of audiences. It delivers most confidently the information centered on victim experiences and service delivery which feels very useful for those working in social work or other professions that lead to encounters with victims. The emphasis on intersectionality shows the need for coordination among a diversity of actors and shows how this is a problem that connects to a number of societal issues and micro-level experiences. This is useful from a problem-solution definition perspective."


-- Emile Hafner-Burton

"I like the organization of micro/mezzo/macro levels. I have yet to see a book that effectively breaks apart the complex factors that perpetuate human trafficking-the authors of this book appear to do that, and they introduce some of the more recent struggles faced by this movement as it grows."

-- Wendy Stickle
"This is a very comprehensive book. I still see it as mostly for social work students, but I think the authors have achieved high degree of an interdisciplinary approach in this text." -- Nadia Shapkina
