Slavery has been among the most ubiquitous of all human institutions, across time and place, from earliest history until, some would argue, the present day. This new four-volume History is the first to survey the entire history of slavery across the world, from antiquity to the present day. It is written by an outstanding international team of scholars working under editors who are the leading experts in the field.
