Tragically even in the world of today, slavery still exists and wears many faces. FIVE THOUSAND YEARS OF SLAVERY provides the suspense and emotional engagement of a great novel. It is an excellent resource with a comprehensive historical narrative, firsthand accounts, maps, archival photos, paintings and posters, an index and suggestions for further reading. Much more than a reference work, it is a brilliant exploration of the worst - and the best - in human society.
