This volume addresses a wide variety of moral concerns regarding slavery as an institutionalized social practice. By considering the slave's critical appropriation of the natural rights doctrine, the ambiguous implications of various notions of consent and liberty are examined. The authors assume that, although slavery is undoubtedly an evil social practice, its moral assessment stands in need of a more nuanced treatment. They address the question of what is wrong with slavery by critically examining, and in some cases endorsing, certain principles derived from communitarianism, paternalism, utilitarianism, and jurisprudence.

Accessible, interesting, challenging, and solid, to be used in a variety of courses with no sacrifice of quality or rigor. All in all, Tommy L. Lott has done the discipline a service by putting together this fine book.--Jeffrey Crawford, philosophy department, Central State University, Wilberforce, Ohio "APA Newsletter on Teaching Philosophy "
