The empires of Greece and Rome, two of the very few genuine slave societies in history, formed the core of the ancient world, and they have much to teach the student of recent slave systems.
Designed to bring the contribution of ancient history to the attention of a wider audience, this collection discusses the Classical definition of slavery, the relationship between war, piracy and slavery, early abolitionist movements as well as the supply and domestic aspects of slavery in Antiquity.

Moses Finlay and slavery - a personal note
war, piracy and slavery in the Greek world
Aristotle and the anonymous opponents of slavery
on the Roman slave supply and slavebreeding
slavery and the Roman family
Circe's pigs - from slavery to serfdom in the later Roman world
