Human Trafficking Summit
The first person in history to witness negotiations for the sale of human beings on four continents, E. Benjamin Skinner is single handedly raising awareness of modern day slavery. In his shocking and brutally honest book, A Crime So Monstrous: Face-to-Face with Modern Day Slavery, Skinner tells the story of individuals who live in slavery, those who have escaped from bondage, those who own or traffic in slaves, and the mixed political motives of those who seek to combat the crime. Elie Weisel has praised the book as a “Powerful indictment of contemporary slavery (which) must arouse outrage for perpetrators and compassion for their victims.”
The basis for a Nightline special report and the inspiration for an episode of Law and Order, Skinner’s A Crime So Monstrous takes readers to the outer edges of civilization, revealing the true faces of slavery today. Skinner went undercover at great personal risk, infiltrating trafficking networks and slave sales on five continents, exposing a modern flesh trade. From megaharems in Dubai to illicit brothels in Bucharest, from slave quarries in India to child markets in Haiti, he explores the underside of a world we scarcely recognize as our own and lays bare a parallel universe where human beings are bought, sold, used, and discarded. He travels from the White House to war zones and immerses us in the political and flesh-and-blood battles on the front lines of the unheralded new abolitionist movement.
In 2003, as a writer on assignment in the frontlines of the north-south Sudanese civil war for Newsweek International, Skinner met his first survivor of slavery, Muong Nyong. Like Skinner, Nyong was 27 at the time, and pondering what to do with the rest of his life. Unlike Skinner, he had spent the first part of that life in bondage. After meeting Nyong, Skinner traveled the globe to find others like him. Though there are more slaves today than ever before, finding them would prove the most daunting challenge of Skinner’s professional life.
