Control and Protect explores the meaning and significance of efforts designed to combat sex trafficking in the United States. A striking case study of the new ways in which law enforcement agents, social service providers, and nongovernmental advocates have joined forces in this campaign, this book reveals how these collaborations consolidate state power and carceral control. This book examines how partnerships forged in the name of fighting domestic sex trafficking have blurred the boundaries between punishment and protection, victim and offender, and state and nonstate authority.

In a world where global flows of people and commodities are on the increase, crimes related to illegal trafficking are creating new concerns for society. This, in turn, has brought about new and contentious forms of regulation, surveillance and control. There is a pressing need to consider both the problem itself, and the impact of international policy responses. This authoritative work examines key issues and debates on human trafficking, drawing on theoretical, historical and comparative material to inform the discussion of major trends. Consolidating current work on human trade debates, the text brings together key criminological and sociological literature on migration studies, gender, globalization, human rights, security, victimology, policing and control to provide the most complete overview available on the subject. Suitable for students, academics and scholars in criminology, criminal justice, sociology and international relations, this book sheds unique light on this highly topical and complex subject.

Human trafficking may be one of the least understood crimes in the United States. Often referred to as "slavery without chains," it is a widespread and highly profitable crime, largely hidden from public view out of ignorance or denial of its existence in the United States. After drug dealing, human trafficking is tied with the illegal arms trade as the second largest criminal industry in the world, and it is the fastest-growing. There are thousands of law enforcement officers within the United States that are confronted with the epidemic of human trafficking. While human trafficking is not a new crime, it has recently taken center stage as a criminal enterprise that is extremely profitable with less risk to the traffickers. As criminals invent new ways to profit and exploit people, law enforcement has to learn new techniques and tactics to adapt to changing trends. Topics include: RECOGNIZING HUMAN TRAFFICKING AND IDENTIFYING VICTIMS INVESTIGATING HUMAN TRAFFICKING CRIME SCENES, PHYSICAL EVIDENCE, AND EXAMINATIONS IN HUMAN TRAFFICKING THE VICTIM'S PSYCHOLOGICAL REACTIONS AND IMMEDIATE NEEDS COMMUNICATING WITH VICTIMS OF HUMAN TRAFFICKING INTERVIEW CHECKLIST LEGAL TOOLS FOR PROSECUTION INTERNET INVESTIGATIONS TYPES OF RECOVERY/ENFORCEMENT OPERATIONS

It catalogs six types of alternative value systems formed on the basis of authority, logic, sense experience, emotion, intuition & science. There is a section on each value system, & readers can determine which systems most accurately describe themselves, their family, their friends & their colleagues. On one level the book explores how & why individuals choose the values they do. On another level it addresses a variety of social issues: whether values should or should not be taught in the classroom &, if so, how they can be taught without violating the freedom of choice which underlies pluralism in our society.
