Have you ever wondered how the movement of people has shaped the world around you?

People have always moved around the world, whether to build a new home or flee from a natural disaster. Without the movement of people, the world would be a very different place. World War One and Two shaped the world in many different ways. Millions of people were affected and many people moved around the world, for good and for bad.

How have countries been shaped by the movement of people who were being punished or sold as slaves?

This book explores the history of penal colonies, the British empire sending prisoners to Australia and America, the French and Russian empires, punishment and international movement today, the transatlantic slave trade, the Underground Railroad, the abolitionist movement, and slavery today.

Includes discussion questions, glossary, and index.
