Somebody's daughter : the hidden story of America's prostituted children and the battle to save them by Julian Sher( Book )

7 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 755 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Most people believe sex trafficking in the United States involves young women from foreign lands, but the vast majority of teens caught in the sex trade are American girls -- the runaways and throwaways few people care about. Hundreds of thousands of prostituted children walk the Las Vegas Strip, the casinos of Atlantic City, the truck stops on interstates, and the street corners of our cities. The author takes the reader behind the scenes to expose one of the most underreported crimes: the trafficking of American girls on American streets. He meets the teenagers who are fighting to survive, a new breed of cops who are trying to rescue them, and the activists battling to protect our country's most forsaken children. A girl from New Jersey is arrested in Las Vegas and, at great risk to her own life, helps a special FBI squad bring down a million-dollar pimping empire. An abused teenager in Texas has the courage to take the stand in a grueling trial that sends her pimp away for seventy-five years. Survivors of the sex trade in New York, Phoenix, and Minneapolis set up shelters and rescue centers that offer young girls a chance to break free from the streets

And Canada is now forced to scramble to defend territories it has ignored for too long. Global warming is turning the Far North into a resource hotspot. The fabled Northwest Passage could become a new super highway for cargo and cruise ships. And beneath the rapidly melting ice lies much of the world's undiscovered oil and gas reserves. Canadian scientists are now joining the soldiers on the front lines of this new frontier, as they race to chart Canada's Arctic claims under the looming deadline of an international treaty. The Battle for the Arctic takes us from the far reaches of the North Pole to the waters of Alaska for a look into a struggle for sovereignty that could change the very face of Canada
Afghanistan between hope and fear( Visual )

"For Canada the stakes are unprecedented. More than a billion dollars in aid has been promised to Afghanistan since the fall of the Taliban regime. And with close to 100 Canadian soldiers killed, the military mission in the war-torn country has exacted a considerable human toll. Six years into the mammoth task of rebuilding Afghanistan, it's time to address a contentious question: is all of this effort making a difference to the lives of Afghans? This documentary takes viewers into the heart of a country that has been the subject of such intense debate and asks whether or not the lives of ordinary citizens are improving. In order to gain unique access to Afghans living in remote and particularly dangerous areas the CBC engaged local journalists and camera crews. Through a series of intensely personal stories delving into a range of topics, the program examines the big issues: Is the country descending into further instability? Or is real progress being made?"--container
