Beschreibung:
An overview of slavery and slaving in world history. Informed by comparative research and supported by bibliographies, more than one hundred topical and geographical essays span the breadth of current scholarship. Providing a survey of established historiography and a guide to contemporary issues and concerns.
Eminent scholars provide an overview of what we now know about slavery as an institution and way of life in cultures around the globe from ancient times to the present day. Drawing on the virtual explosion of empirical research and theoretical discussion on the subject over the past thirty years, many of the articles overturn conventional wisdom and illuminate little-known aspects of the subject, with essays on topics such as concubinage, eunuchs, and occupational mobility.
