Child Labour in Global Society is a critical response to the modern educational regime, compulsory schooling and the 'slavery industry' in a globalizing world; to evolving and exploitative notions of 'slavery'; to definitions of 'slavery' in international law; to approaches to 'educational labor', including in international human rights law; and to cultural, common-sense and professional perspectives on 'slavery' and 'educational labor', in the light of which it is arguable that children's 'slave labor' in modern and modernizing societies is grossly under-estimated and otherwise greatly, if conveniently, misrepresented.
