Shackles of Iron : Slavery Beyond the Atlantic, Hardback Book

Shackles of Iron : Slavery Beyond the Atlantic Hardback

Edited by Alfred J. Andrea

Description

"Gordon's survey of the topic makes it clear that slavery in the Americas can be understood much better if we put it in this larger context, in terms of both time and place.

His chapters on East African and Mediterranean slavery are especially valuable, since these were contemporary with so-called Atlantic slavery and can provide students with valid points of comparison, revealing both the similarities and the variable nature of early-modern bondage.

The final chapter is especially timely, reminding readers that much of what we think of as enslavement hasn't really gone away, but simply slipped below the radar of the world media.

All in all, Gordon makes it clear that, though it has arisen in different guises and at many different times and places, slavery has been and remains deeply rooted in human society.

A rewarding introduction for anyone looking to better understand slavery as a world-wide institution." -Robert Davis, The Ohio State University
