Work has begun on The Encyclopedia of Modern Slavery, to be edited by Junius P. Rodriguez and published by ABC-CLIO. Scheduled to appear in December 2007, the work will comprise alphabetically arranged entries on all aspects of the subject and is intended to provide an overview of current scholarship in the field.
This two volume, 500,000-word encyclopedia will cover the history of modern slavery from the late-nineteenth century to the present. Entries will consist of specific individuals, organizations, incidents, concepts, thematic essays, and country studies of contemporary slavery.
