Description :

Language: English . Brand New Book. Life Interrupted introduces us to survivors of human trafficking who are struggling to get by and make homes for themselves in the United States. Having spent nearly a decade following the lives of formerly trafficked men and women, Denise Brennan recounts in close detail their flight from their abusers and their courageous efforts to rebuild their lives. At once scholarly and accessible, her book links these firsthand accounts to global economic inequities and under-regulated and unprotected workplaces that routinely exploit migrant laborers in the United States. Brennan contends that today s punitive immigration policies undermine efforts to fight trafficking. While many believe trafficking happens only in the sex trade, Brennan shows that across low-wage labor sectors - in fields, in factories, and on construction sites - widespread exploitation can lead to and conceal forced labor. Life Interrupted is a riveting account of life in and after trafficking and a forceful call for meaningful immigration and labor reform. N° de réf. du libraire

Synopsis : Life Interrupted introduces us to survivors of human trafficking who are struggling to get by and make homes for themselves in the United States.

At once scholarly and accessible, her book links these firsthand accounts to global economic inequities and under-regulated and unprotected workplaces that routinely exploit migrant laborers in the United States. Brennan contends that today's punitive immigration policies undermine efforts to fight trafficking. While many believe trafficking happens only in the sex trade, Brennan shows that across low-wage labor sectors - in fields, in factories, and on construction sites - widespread exploitation can lead to and conceal forced labor. Life Interrupted is a riveting account of life in and after trafficking and a forceful call for meaningful immigration and labor reform.

Critique: "Life Interrupted is a powerful investigation of the often invisible exploitation of migrants - whether on farms, in factories, or in domestic work. The first-hand accounts of trafficking paint a vivid and painful picture of the trauma and cruelty of forced labor and the struggle of these migrants to rebuild their lives afterward. These very personal histories shed light on lives in the shadows of our globalized economy. Life Interrupted is a must-read for anyone who cares about fairness and justice for workers." - Filmmaker, Activist Morgan Spurlock (Director of Super Size Me, Executive Producer/Host CNN's Inside Man). "Life Interrupted is a wonderful synthesis of analysis and empathy. Based on extensive fieldwork, Denise Brennan's valuable book is part of a new wave of scholarship into the darkest side of the world's political economy, an important corrective to celebratory odes to 'globalization' and 'cosmopolitanism' that pass for critical thinking." - Greg Grandin, author of Fordlandia: The Rise and Fall of Henry Ford's Forgotten Jungle City "Denise Brennan makes it crystal clear that forced labor isn't 'over there.' It is right here. One of the many strengths of this fine ethnography is its letting us see how those women and men who have managed to escape such acute exploitation go about rebuilding their lives, step-by-difficult-step." - Cynthia Enloe, author of Seriously! Investigating Crashes and Crises as if Women Mattered "Denise Brennan's intimate conversations with survivors of forced labor in the US puts the human back into 'human trafficking.' Introducing us to the trafficking survivors next door, Brennan steers us away from the sensationalism of sex trafficking and toward the real - and much bigger - story of how the ordinary exploitation of all kinds of migrant workers leads to abuse, violence, and forced labor. Readable, personal, and authoritative, Life Interrupted takes us into the legal limbo where 'trafficked persons' linger after their escape from bondage. No one knows more about this urgent issue than Denise Brennan." - Cindy Hahamovitch, author of No Man's Land: Jamaican Guestworkers in America and the Global History of Deportable Labor "Life Interrupted is a must-read for those seeking to understand to understand why immigration polices, US and otherwise, can prolong human misery. Bluntly confronting the risks and dangers all immigrants face when they must leave their homes in search of better lives, this admirable book is a major contributor to productive ways to rethink global immigration." - Times Higher Education "Brennan's book is the antidote to the current rush to conflate human trafficking with sex work. In Life Interrupted: Trafficking into Forced Labor in the United States, Brennan compiles years of interviews she's done with people who have been trafficked for labor in agriculture, construction and domestic work, not just sex work... Her discussion of the T (for "trafficked") visa, which is given to 5,000 people a year, and the legal limbo to which its recipients are consigned, is especially enlightening, as is the very clear fact that we are all responsible for human trafficking. Our economy, as Brennan points out, depends upon it." - Colorado Springs Independent "In Life Interrupted: Trafficking into Forced Labor in the United States, Denise Brennan... uses a decade of field work to explain human trafficking and to identify its causes" - U.S. News and World
