Learn how and why, within a relatively brief timespan, the world shifted from massive, unquestioned reliance on slavery to universal detestation and abhorrence.

This concise and vivid account traces slavery from Biblical times to the present, exploring the moral and economic issues slavery raises, the lives of individual slaves, their treatment, and their resilience. Among topics addressed are the Portuguese in Africa, the important role of sugar, Britain as a leading exponent of slavery and then a foremost champion of liberation, slavery in Brazil and the Caribbean, slavery in the United States, and modern slavery.
