Sexual slavery of younger women and children is rapidly becoming the most profitable criminal activity after drug trafficking. The situation is made worse by the fact that under the legal systems of most states involved those trafficked are not deemed to be victims but rather undocumented criminals involved in an often-illegal activity. Very rarely are they offered any support or legal backing.

This groundbreaking volume explores the multicultural debate that has evolved in the United States and Europe since the cataclysmic events of 9/11. Instead of suggesting closure by presenting a unified narrative about cultural diversity, national identity, and social stratification, the essays in this well-balanced collection present a variety of perspectives, each highlighting the undiminished relevance of key issues such as immigration, assimilation, and citizenship, while also pointing to unresolved conflicts over universalism, religion, and tolerance. Most importantly, this volume shows th
