"Slavery" is a strong word and an even stronger claim to make in the 21st century, but Qiu's Goodbye iSlave uses that word for what it means. The novel's perspective is held with confidence, using a strong information base for an argument that remains level, logical, and all too real. It is a must-read for anybody concerned with the affairs of this day and age.
