Description

Chronology of World Slavery combines multiple chronologies, sidebars on specialized topics, primary source documents, and gripping illustrations into a compelling portrayal of slavery from the dawn of civilization to the present. Organized by geographic region and time period, this work enables readers to gain a quick understanding of how long slavery has been part of human life and where it has occurred.

Chronology of World Slavery is the ideal companion to The Historical Encyclopedia of World Slavery (ABC-CLIO, 1997). Together, these works span all world cultures and time periods to examine humankind's most perplexing—and persistent—historical issue.

Features

  • Seven separate chronologies covering multiple world regions
  • 128 in depth sidebars written by 80 eminent scholars
  • 81 primary source documents from diverse time periods
  • More than 100 black-and-white illustrations and photographs
  • Preface and introduction

Reviews/Endorsements

Reviews

"For all reference collections."—Choice

"Recommended for all libraries."—American Libraries

"Given the ongoing interest in this subject, this work should be added to the reference collections of high school and college libraries."—American Reference Books Annual

"[A] fine reference book on this important topic. Recommended primarily for large public and academic libraries."—Library Journal

"This reference volume is designed to complement The Historical Encyclopedia of World Slavery, but it can stand on its own as an important reference source . . . this volume will probably be heavily used for in depth units on slavery. Recommended."—The Book Report

"[T]he most comprehensive work of its type currently available . . . Libraries that already own The Historical Encyclopedia of World Slavery will definately want to add this complementary volume. However, this reference will stand on its own merits and other libraries in need of a worthy chronology on this important topic should consider it."—Against the Grain

"The title of this useful reference volume does not accurately indicate the range of information it contains . . . it should be immensely useful to students and teachers."—The Journal of Southern History
