It could happen to you. It happened to the girl next door... When Theresa was 15 she moved to a new school and fell for an older pupil, Daniel. Theresa was thrilled when one afternoon he asked if he could drive her home. But this simple decision would hold her captive as a sex slave for two long years. Daniel was part of a criminal ring that bribed and trafficked Theresa out of her own house, unknown to her parents. Theresa would go to school alongside these boys in the day and be called into service at night. Heart-rending, shocking and totally gripping The Slave Across the Street is the incredible true story of how an ordinary girl was lured into the sinister world of human trafficking – and how she eventually escaped and rebuilt her life.

In this riveting book, authors and authorities on modern day slavery Kevin Bales and Ron Soodalter expose the disturbing phenomenon of human trafficking and slavery that exists now in the United States. In The Slave Next Door we find that slaves are all around us, hidden in plain sight: the dishwasher in the kitchen of the neighborhood restaurant, the kids on the corner selling cheap trinkets, the man sweeping the floor of the local department store. In these pages we also meet some unexpected slaveholders, such as a 27-year old middle-class Texas housewife who is currently serving a life sentence for offences including slavery. Weaving together a wealth of voices—from slaves, slaveholders, and traffickers as well as from experts, counselors, law enforcement officers, rescue and support groups, and others—this book is also a call to action, telling what we, as private citizens, can do to finally bring an end to this horrific crime.

This is a true story of human trafficking in America as told through the testimony of the United States vs. Dennis Paris trial. This test of American law provides a unique and detailed account of how a specific type of trafficking commercial sexual exploitation (CSE) takes place throughout the United States, involving mostly female minors and young adults. While we touch on related topics, the overall objective is to closely examine this heretofore ignored truth. This one case contains every element of a crime so reliant on secrecy; hiding behind a scintillating veil of growing legitimacy. Indeed, American CSE is buried just below the surface of our culture's mainstream reality. The myth is that it disguises itself as a different monster; an evil face that is easy to recognize. The truth is far more devious and complex. In the shadows of our daily lives, this silent explosion of crime and abuse hides behind masks of false innocence and legitimacy. Through the testimony of the case we learn where and how these events take place from the perspective of the prosecution, defense, and witnesses. We also learn a great deal about the geographic locations where these and related historical events occurred in America: all within a tiny, wealthy area of central Connecticut. And, at its very core, BECHARD: a twelve-mile stretch of concrete called the Berlin Turnpike. While unique in its character and biography, the Berlin Turnpike is exceptionally ordinary in the qualities that attract prostitution, human trafficking, and all forms of commercial sexual exploitation to it. It accurately represents the dangerously magnetic commonalities shared by thousands of roadways, neighborhoods, businesses, print publications, and websites hiding throughout the nation. By exposing the truth behind what happens on the Berlin Turnpike in all its forms, we discover the difficult truth lurking in every American community.

A Pulitzer Prize-winning account of the “Age of Neoslavery,” the American period following the Emancipation Proclamation in which convicts, mostly black men, were “leased” through forced labor camps operated by state and federal governments. In this groundbreaking historical expose, Douglas A. Blackmon brings to light one of the most shameful chapters in American history—an “Age of Neoslavery” that thrived from the aftermath of the Civil War through the dawn of World War II. Using a vast record of original documents and personal narratives, Douglas A. Blackmon unearths the lost stories of slaves and their descendants who journeyed into freedom after the Emancipation Proclamation and then back into the shadow of involuntary servitude shortly thereafter. By turns moving, sobering, and shocking, this unprecedented account reveals the stories of those who fought unsuccessfully against the re-emergence of human labor trafficking, the companies that profited most from neoslavery, and the insidious legacy of racism that reverberates today. From the Trade Paperback edition.
