In this volume, Elizabeth Swanson and James Brewer Stewart bring together scholars from across disciplines to address and expose the roots of modern-day slavery from a historical perspective as a means of supporting activist efforts to fight it in the present. They trace modern slavery to its many sources, examining how it is sustained and how today\'s abolitionists might benefit by understanding their predecessors\' successes and failures. Using scholarship also intended as activism, the volume\'s authors analyze how the history of African American enslavement might illuminate or obscure the understanding of slavery today and show how the legacies of earlier forms of slavery have shaped human bondage and social relations in the twenty-first century.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:description<\/a> \"Contemporary slavery in historical perspective \/ David Richardson -- Slavery and civic death: making sense of modern slavery in historical context \/ James Sidbury -- From statute to amendment and back again: the evolution of American slavery and antislavery law \/ Allison Mileo Gorsuch -- Kidnappers and subcontractors: historical perspectives on human trafficking \/ John Donoghue -- Maritime bondage: comparing past and present \/ Kerry Ward -- \"All boys are bound to someone\": reimagining freedom in the history of child slavery \/ Anna Mae Duane -- From white slavery to anti-prostitution, the long view: law, policy, and sex rrafficking \/ Jessica R.
