This is a book about coerced migration and resultant sexual and other kinds of exploitation. It is about a very sensitive and unpleasant subject, pone which we would, in reality sweep under the carpet and try to forget it exists. Yet, more and more it is in our faces and we cannot ignore it or pretend it does not exist in our sophisticated societies. And yet, it is supported because there is a demand for it. It is economically viable; not only that, it is extremely profitable; otherwise people would not take such grave risks to promote it. Today, it is a matter of global concern and then authors have done well to provide a valuable resource for those of us who simply do not know how to identify the problem and its victims and how to respond to it.
