Required reading

A friend wrote today to ask me to recommend a few books on trafficking.  Here are some of the top picks on my bookshelf (with links).  Amazon has thoughtfully reviewed them, so I won’t.  🙂

Not all of the authors are Christians; and not all of the Christians share my own faith perspective.  However, I think each of these authors has something important to say as we consider this issue and shape our own responses.

Happy reading!

Prostitution, Trafficking and Traumatic Stress, Melissa Farley PhD

Human Trafficking: A Global Perspective, Louise Shelley

Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide (Vintage), Nicholas D. Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn

Global Woman: Nannies, Maids, and Sex Workers in the New Economy, Barbara Ehrenreich and Arlie Russell Hochschild

Casting Stones: Prostitution And Liberation In Asia And The United States, Rita Nakashima Brock and Susan Brooks Thistlethwaite

Walking With the Poor: Principles and Practices of Transformational Development, Bryant L. Myers

This list is only a tiny start on the vast quantity of good books out there on trafficking, prostitution, and some of its root causes.  What are your ‘go-to’ resources??
