"The War on Human Trafficking covers the policy battles surrounding efforts to abolish human trafficking. Anthony M. DeStefano details events leading up to the creation of the Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2000--the federal law that first addressed this phenomenon--and assesses the effectiveness and aftermath of the law. DeStefano also describes the tensions created as the Bush Administration used trafficking laws to attack prostitution and shows how the American response to these criminal activities was influenced by the events of September 11th and the war in Iraq. This important book gets beyond sensational stories of sexual servitude and explains the powerful economic conditions that impel immigrants to put themselves at risk"--Provided by publisher.
