The author has written a frank and grimly fascinating documentary account of the white slave traffic of the 19th century. He shows with vivid and often horrifying detail how the 'export trade' in young girls from Britain reached a peak which eventually shocked and rocked the whole nation. The reader may find this a shattering book, but cannot fail to be inspired by its salute to those men and women who risked their lives in bringing to an end a social abomination which threatened to bring about the complete moral downfall of the nation.
