Publisher Description

Slavery's origins lie far back in the mists of prehistoric times and have spanned the globe-two facts that most history texts fail to address. The crucial moment of transition in the evolution of slavery was the point at which the successful warriors decided that they could exploit the labor of their prisoners, forcing them into a degraded underclass. This handy paperback version of the Historical Dictionary of Slavery and Abolition provides a historical overview of slavery though the ages, from prehistoric times to the modern day. It details slavery's different forms and the circumstances existing in numerous countries and regions. A complete treatment of this cruel institution, including a discussion of the causes and cures, as well as the plight of those who fought against it.
