Life Interrupted: Trafficking into Forced Labor in the United States

Life InterruptedLife Interrupted: Trafficking into Forced Lab or in the United States is a newly released book by Denise Brennan, Associate Professor and Chair of the Department of Anthropology at Georgetown University.  Life Interrupted follows the lives of survivors of trafficking in the United States.  It documents the ordinary tasks of settling into a new country after extraordinary abuse.  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. Life Interrupted is a riveting account of life in and after trafficking and a forceful call for meaningful immigration and labor reform. All royalties from this book will be donated to the nonprofit Survivor Leadership Training Fund administered through the Freedom Network.
