About this book
A global history of slavery, from ancient origins through the horrors of the Atlantic trade, to the present day. Places slavery within a global context, with new insights and interpretations.
Reveals how slavery was first developed in the ancient world, and explores contemporary crimes of trafficking and bonded labour. This title shows how slavery has taken many forms in history and across the world - from the uprising of Spartacus, the plantations of the Indies, and the murderous forced labour of the gulags and concentration camps.
