Invisible Citizens : Captives and Their Consequences Paperback / softback

Edited by Catherine Cameron


Throughout history, warfare and raiding forced captives from one society into another, forming an almost invisible stratum of many people without kin and largely outside the social systems in which they lived. "Invisible Citizens "explores the profound effects this mingling of societies and customs had on cultural development around the world.The contributors to this volume explore the remarkable range in the conditions and experiences of captives, from abject drudge to quasi kinswoman and from war captive to sexual concubine.

Developing methods for identifying captives in the archaeological record are established in light of the silence that surrounded captive-taking and enslavement in many parts of the world."Invisible Citizens" promises to attract attention from a number of fields concerned with the comparative, historical study of social inequality.

It challenges scholars to develop robust, empirically grounded insights into the practices of slavery while attending to the forms and saliencies of its memories. .
