Not a particularly upbeat book to end the year with, but a book full of resources, ideas, and cautions for people who want to fight human trafficking in their communities.

This book is very straight forward and text book like going over definitions and pieces of legislation.

While it does have one chapter about how to get involved, overall it seems to lack a call to action. It is very good on educating about human trafficking, but unless you are a professional in that area, not much is of practical value to the average reader. It is very good at teaching those that are already interested in abolitionism more about the greatest evil in the world.
