The Historical Encyclopedia of World Slavery, Volume 1; Volume 7 (Google eBook)
This two-volume study of slavery spans more than 4000 years of world history. Written by experts in this field, the text argues that slavery has been practiced since the dawn of human history, and in nearly every society. The overriding argument of the book is that whatever the local variation, slavery - like war - has left its indelible imprint on humanity.
