Welcome to the Bangkok Slaughterhouse $13.97

Welcome to the Bangkok Slaughterhouse by Father Joe Maier

True stories from Bangkok's Klong Toey Slum
The Battle for Human Dignity in Bangkok's Bleakest Slums
Foreword by Jerry Hopkins, author of No One Here Gets Out Alive

A six-year-old horse walker? Glue-sniffling kids? Gambler moms pandering their daughters? Pedophile grandpa? Aids infected children? Sad, shocking stories but true. They happen every day in the heart of this City of Angels. Turn a blind eye on them, if you like. No one would blame you. Even authorities do the same. But if you wish to know what is happening right under your nose, here are first-hand accounts that "go beyond facts and figures to uncover the heart and soul of those living in the slum". If you look hard enough, there are happy moments too -- like the bonds of love and friendship that carry one through the hard times.

The Reverend Joseph H. Maier, C.Ss.R., is a Redemptorist priest from the United States. He came to Thailand in 1967 as a missionary, serving in northern Isan and then among the Hmong in Laos. In 1972, he established the Human Development Foundation in Bangkok's Klong Toey slum, where he has lived and worked for more than 30 years. Threatened and shot at, the unwavering priest has over the years become a no-nonsense, street-smart friend to the poor, from whom he draws constant inspiration. Royalties from the sales of this book will be donated to the Human Development Foundation charity.
