Drawing on 15 years of work in the anti-slavery movement, former FTS staffer Austin Choi-Fitzpatrick examines the systematic oppression of men, women and children in rural India and asks: How do contemporary slaveholders rationalize the subjugation of other human beings, and how do they respond when their power is threatened? Through frank and unprecedented conversations with slaveholders, Choi-Fitzpatrick reveals the condescending and paternalistic thought processes that blind them. While they understand they are exploiting workers’ vulnerabilities, slaveholders also feel they are doing workers a favor, often taking pride in this relationship.
