Reviews

"A brief but exhaustive debut book looks at human trafficking. . . . [Mehlman-Orozco's] meticulous research is based not only on a survey of the available literature, but also on her own interviews with victims, perpetrators of human trafficking, and the consumers who patronize their businesses. [Her] prose is both lucid and emotionally stirring, and she often illustrates her points with personal anecdotes to paint a picture that transcends statistical analysis. The subject matter can be disturbing--the chapter devoted to child sex tourism is particularly harrowing--but she navigates that dark terrain with grace and professionalism. She helpfully suggests a number of ways the response from law enforcement could be greatly improved, including empowering otherwise disenfranchised victims to come forward. An intellectually rigorous and emotionally affecting account of modern enslavement." - Kirkus Reviews
"We strongly believe that this is an essential resource for anyone eager to spread awareness and take action. . . . The brilliance behind this book rests in how Mehlman-Orozco manages to give light to the complexities that surround modern-slavery in America. . . . After reading Hidden in Plain Sight, readers will not only understand the urgency of this situation but the importance of providing sustainable solutions and resources for victims of modern-slavery, so that the endless cycle of exploitation can be stopped. This book makes it clear that we can change what is happening in plain sight all around us if we only have the courage to look." - Dressember
