Globalization and Redemption

Globalization and Redemption

(p.112) Chapter 6 Globalization and Redemption
Understanding Global Slavery

Kevin Bales

University of California Press

This chapter has two main goals. First, it explains how slavery mirrors other economic pursuits in becoming globalized. Second, it looks at the traditional types of slavery practiced in Mauritania and Sudan, in order to take up the thorny question of the “redemption” of slaves in Sudan and to shed a little light on this problem by contextualizing it historically and socially.

Keywords:   slavery, globalization, Mauritania, Sudan, redemption, slaves
