Slavery Inc. : the untold story of international sex trafficking by Lydia Cacho( Book )

5 editions published between 2010 and 2015 in English and Spanish and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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, willfully blind politicians, eager consumers, and countless hapless 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. This is an underground economy in which a sex slave can be bought for the price of a gun, but Cacho's powerful first-person interviews with mafiosi, pimps, prostitutes, and those who managed to escape from captivity makes it impossible to ignore the terrible human cost of this lucrative exchange. 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."--Provided by publisher

CeroCeroCero : ćomo la cocaína gobierna el mundo by Roberto Saviano( Book )

7 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in Spanish and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Escribir sobre la cocaína --en palabras de Roberto Saviano-- es como consumirla. Cada vez quieres más noticias, más información, y las que encuentras son suculentas, ya no puedes prescindir de ellas. Eres addicted. Aún cuando remiten a un esquema general que ya has comprendido, esas historias fascinan por sus detalles. Delante ves el listón de la adicción, que no hace más que subir, y ruegas para no entrar nunca en crisis de abstinencia. Por eso sigo recopilándolas hasta la náusea, más de lo que sería necesario, sin poder detenerme. Son fogonazos que estallan cegadores. Ensordecedores puñetazos en el estómago. Pero ¿por qué ese ruido sólo lo oigo yo? Cuanto más desciendo en los círculos blanqueados de la coca, más me percato de que la gente no sabe. Hay un río que corre bajo las grandes ciudades, un río que nace en Sudamérica, pasa por Africa y se ramifica hacia todas partes. Hombres y mujeres pasean por la Via del Corso y por los bulevares parisinos, se reúnen en Times Square y caminan con la cabeza gacha por las avenidas londinenses. ¿No oyen nada? ¿Cómo lo hacen para soportar todo ese ruido?"

One essay reflects on the aftermath of the publication of his book and subsequent film, Gomorrah, and how his life has been conditioned by the mafia's death threats, and the final essay in the collection celebrates the life of the Russian journalist Anna Politkovskaya
The ring ; and, the opposite of death by Roberto Saviano( Book )

3 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Italy's impoverished south, choices are limited. Rules and traditions are more powerful than the lives of individuals, and young Italians who stand on the right side of the law still find themselves on the frontline. In 'The Opposite of Death', Maria is a seventeen-year-old widow before she has even made it to the altar; her fiance enlisted and died in Afghanistan to avoid a life controlled by the mafia. In 'The Ring', a tale of bloody vengeance, a young woman comes to visit from the north, bringing with her ignorance and prejudice. Two women at separate poles of experience. Roberto Saviano has become a symbol of a whole generation of lost young Italians; these stories demonstrate once more the commitment to truth and justice that made Gomorrah such an exceptionally brave book
