Review:

Trafficking in people is arguably one of the most contested topics in criminology in the last two decades..This book represents a significant contribution towards building a more sound knowledge about trafficking. Exceptionally well written and structured, its seven chapters look into important aspects of trafficking...Moreover, in addition to outlining the problematic terrain of current knowledge of, and responses to trafficking, the book also offers an uncompromising line of argument that effectively deconstructs existing misconceptions and stereotypes about trafficking, and proposes an alternative framework for better understanding and engaging with this complex social issue...Trafficking and Global Crime Control is a must read for academics, researchers, students, journalists, practitioners, and activists
Sanja Milivojevic
Australian & New Zealand Journal of Criminology

This book makes a strong contribution to contemporary criminology and the many other disciplines Lee weaves together in order to provide the necessary multidisciplinary perspective on a multi-faceted problem. In doing so, the analysis sheds new light on the history, causes, nature and consequences of trafficking from various theoretical, political and comparative angles. It critically examines the key debates, concerns and dilemmas facing regulators of trafficking and global crime, forcing the reader to question the increased tendency to criminalise trafficking along with the traditionally punitive responses which dominate its regulation. These efforts have culminated in a highly readable, intellectually engaging and clearly organised book suitable for a range of courses spanning the many disciplines it builds on, while serving as an insightful resource to policymakers and practitioners in search of new ideas and strategies for reducing trafficking and global crime
