"This volume ushers in a fascinating new series from Oxford, "Ancients and Moderns" designed to introduce undergraduates and general readers to the reception and influence of antiquity in modern institutions and concepts. The topics planned for the series, including, religion, sex, and war, are bound to pique interest and debate among students of both contemporary and ancient society, and this first volume on slavery certainly establishes the precedent. Recommended." --CHOICE
