Illegal, inhuman, and impervious to recession, there is one trade that continues to thrive, just out of sight. The international sex trade criss-crosses the entire globe, a sinister network made up of criminal masterminds, local handlers, corrupt policemen, wilfully blind politicians, eager consumers, and countless exploited women and children. In this ground-breaking work of investigative reporting, the celebrated journalist Lydia Cacho follows the trail of the traffickers and their victims from Mexico to Turkey, Thailand to Iraq, Georgia to the UK, to expose the trade's hidden links with the tourist industry, internet pornography, drugs and arms smuggling, the selling of body organs, money laundering, and even terrorism. Shocking and sobering, Slavery Inc. is an exceptional book, both for the colossal scope of its enquiry, and for the tenacious bravery with which Cacho pursues the truth.

Lydia Cacho lleva al lector de la mano por un viaje emocionante en el que encuentra la voz de las víctimas de las mafias tratantes de mujeres en México. Por la periodista Lydia Cacho, autora del bestseller Los demonios del Edén. Prólogo de Roberto Saviano. A partir de casos concretos, así como de historias conmovedoras, Lydia Cacho sigue una línea de investigación para llegar a las mafias de tratantes de mujeres, que la conducen desde México hasta Kirguistán, pasando por Malasia, Japón y Myanmar, entre otras partes del mundo. Lydia Cacho lleva al lector de la mano por un viaje emocionante en el que encuentra la voz de las víctimas y al mismo tiempo expone a los servidores públicos dedicados a proteger a dichas mafias. Esclavas del poder es un mapa global de la trata de mujeres. Un viaje de ida y vuelta, en el cuál la autora sigue la cadena de lo que los expertos han llamado "la esclavitud del siglo XXI". Otros autores han opinado: "Lydia Cacho es un símbolo del periodismo valiente. En este libro Lydia llega más allá de las fronteras de México. Ataviada con disfraces diversos, viaja desde los bajos fondos mexicanos de la Merced hasta los centros nocturnos y los prostíbulos de Japón, pasando por muchos otros nudos de la inmensa telaraña de mafiosos, empresarios, policías, jueces y políticos que manejan el negocio en el mundo. Lydia escucha, para que sean escuchadas, las voces de las víctimas, las vidas rotas, y acusa a quienes ejercen la forma más abyecta del derecho de propiedad, hombres dueños de mujeres, adultos dueños de niños: esos supermachos que humillando a los más débiles manifiestan su despreciable poder." - Eduardo Galeano "Lydia Cacho se mete en los vericuetos necesarios para mostrar el mapa de la esclavitud contemporánea, las rutas de este comercio criminal y cómo el fenómeno está entramado a través de un putrefacto involucramiento gubernamental, la complacencia y la indiferencia de amplias capas de la sociedad." - Carmen Aristegui

Mapping the Cold War

In this fascinating history of Cold War cartography, Timothy Barney considers maps as central to the articulation of ideological tensions between American national interests and international aspirations. Barney argues that the borders, scales, projections, and other conventions of maps prescribed and constrained the means by which foreign policy elites, popular audiences, and social activists navigated conflicts between North and South, East and West. Maps also influenced how identities were formed in a world both shrunk by advancing technologies and marked by expanding and shifting geopolitical alliances and fissures. Pointing to the necessity of how politics and values were "spatialized" in recent U.S. history, Barney argues that Cold War–era maps themselves had rhetorical lives that began with their conception and production and played out in their circulation within foreign policy circles and popular media. Reflecting on the ramifications of spatial power during the period, Mapping the Cold War ultimately demonstrates that even in the twenty-first century, American visions of the world--and the maps that account for them--are inescapably rooted in the anxieties of that earlier era.

First published in 1901, Up From Slavery is one of the classic books from the era of American slavery. In it, Booker T. Washington details his rise from a child born into slavery to a free man with a college education. He offers readers his views on the future of blacks in America, charting a course for their development that starts with an education in practical trades. By proving themselves to be important parts of society, he believed they would be granted civil rights without a bloody struggle. Students of history will find this an essential read from the dawning of the civil rights struggle in America. American author BOOKER T. WASHINGTON (1856-1915) was born to a white father and black slave mother in Virginia. His Atlanta Address of 1895 brought him great acclaim, and for the rest of his life he remained a respected figure in the African American community. Among his most influential writings is an article for Atlantic Monthly called "The Awakening of the Negro" (1896).

A provocative and eye-opening study of the essential role the US military and the Central Intelligence Agency played in the advancement of communication studies during the Cold War era, now with a new introduction by Robert W. McChesney and a new preface by the author Since the mid-twentieth century, the great advances in our knowledge about the most effective methods of mass communication and persuasion have been visible in a wide range of professional fields, including journalism, marketing, public relations, interrogation, and public opinion studies. However, the birth of the modern science of mass communication had surprising and somewhat troubling midwives: the military and covert intelligence arms of the US government. In this fascinating study, author Christopher Simpson uses long-classified documents from the Pentagon, the CIA, and other national security agencies to demonstrate how this seemingly benign social science grew directly out of secret government-funded research into psychological warfare. It reveals that many of the most respected pioneers in the field of communication science were knowingly complicit in America’s Cold War efforts, regardless of their personal politics or individual moralities, and that their findings on mass communication were eventually employed for the purposes of propaganda, subversion, intimidation, and counterinsurgency. An important, thought-provoking work, Science of Coercion shines a blazing light into a hitherto remote and shadowy corner of Cold War history.

One of the most disturbing autobiographies ever published in the United States, this now classic tale of African-American life in the late 18th and early 19th centuries offers an intimate view of the harsh brutality of slavery... written by a man who escaped its horrors twice and published anonymously while he was living as a fugitive. Enslaved in Maryland, South Carolina, and Georgia, and witness to some of the most cruel treatment of the entire slavery era, CHARLES BALL (b. 1780) was sold away from his mother and siblings when he was four years old, and never saw any of them again, and then watched his father wither from grief. In this 1836 account, he describes the poor diet and living conditions of his fellow slaves, details the inhuman punishments they were subjected to, and decries the thoughtless malice with which their families were ripped apart: he lost his own family when he was forcibly separated from his wife and children. An invaluable example of firsthand history, this is must-reading for anyone who wishes to understand slavery in the United States.

"Featuring essays by historians and anthropologists, this volume focuses on the cultural dimensions of slavery in a wide variety of geographical and historical settings. The contributors examine the historical manifestations of slavery not only as legal, political, and economic institutions but as systems of human interaction and experience that are prone to conflicts and riddled with contradictions." "Among the geographic areas covered in this collection are colonial Louisiana, the American South of the antebellum and Reconstruction periods, Jamaica, the Danish West Indies, Suriname, and Africa's Gold Coast. Some of the essays deal with conceptual and theoretical problems of current slavery studies, while others present new research on neglected issues such as Native American slave-holding and the integration of former slaves into West African societies. Still other essays probe the continuities of cultural processes across the historical threshold between slavery and freedom." "Taken together, the comparative perspectives and interdisciplinary approaches offered by this volume make it an important addition to the increasingly sophisticated ways in which the social and ideological arrangements produced by slavery are understood."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

There is no evidence that there was any direct connection between the publication of the Liberator and the servile insurrection which occurred during the following August. It was, however, but natural that the South should associate the two events. A few utterances of the paper were fitted, if not intended, to incite insurrection. One passage reads: ... "Rather than see men wearing their chains in a cowardly and servile spirit, I would, as an advocate of peace, much rather see them breaking the heads of the tyrant with their chains."-from "The Turning Point"It's the rare history book that offers first-person knowledge combined with an understanding of the grander context in which the events depicted too place, but we have such a unique confluence in this 1919 book. Jesse May, born into a family of Midwest abolitionists and a Quaker noncombatant during the Civil War, grew up to become a respected historian and political scientist, and he brings his unusual perspective on slavery and abolition in America to this concise, clear-headed survey. From an expurgated tidbit condemning slavery in an early draft of the Declaration of Independence to the particular power of women in the antislavery movement, Macy's work is a brief but devastating argument about hypocrisy, democracy, and freedom in America in the mid-19th century.American political scientist JESSE MACY (1842-1919) was a professor at Grinnell College. He wrote extensively on political, social, and civic matters.
