    Thomas Sowell’s book: The Thomas Sowell Reader (in the chapter titled “Twisted History”) erroneously cites this September 2004 edition of Nation Geographic as containing an article about 21st century slavery. The article he cited is in fact contained in the September 2003 edition of the Magazine.
