Serious research into the problematic and distressing concept of human trafficking continues to blossom. Indeed, the work of scholars in this cross-disciplinary field supports numerous international journals, regional organizations, and global conferences. Now, to make some sense of the wide range of approaches and complex theories that have informed thinking in this area, Routledge announces a new title in its acclaimed Critical Concepts in Criminology series. Edited by a leading scholar with an international reputation, Human Trafficking is a definitive, four-volume collection of cutting-edge and foundational research.
The collection is fully indexed and supplemented with a comprehensive introduction, newly written by the editor, which places the gathered materials in their historical and intellectual context. Human Trafficking will be particularly useful as a database allowing scattered and often fugitive material to be easily located. It will also be welcomed as a crucial tool permitting rapid access to less familiar—and sometimes overlooked—texts. For scholars, students, and policy-makers, it is an essential one-stop research and pedagogic resource.
