Extract from the back cover

Unfree and constrained work has been central to global capitalism throughout its history. Rooted in this broad consensus emerging from historical debates over the status of labor, the contributions in this volume explore a set of inter-related themes that include the relationship between free and forced work, migration (both voluntary and induced, transnational and intra-national), and its linkages to the production of constraints, the racialized logic of the global division of labor, and the role that states play in underwriting these processes.
