Format: Hardcover
Surely, this book is not inexpensive (but unfortunately all these books are expensive), BUT I rarely enjoyed reading a book more than reading this book.
Professor Hezser does not only give an excellent introduction into Jewish Slavery, but also compares it with slavery in the Hellenistic and Roman world. Thus she provides much more than the title of the book suggests. The entire text is based on ample evidence (it was for me surprising to learn how much there still is).
Having read this book one sees "slavery" in antiquity more authentic (closer to the facts) than one may before reading this book.
I strongly recommend this book to anyone interested in social life in Roman times.
