Excellent introduction to slavery in the Roman world. Joshel also examines other slavery cultures throughout history, and explores the effects slavery had on slaves, slaveholders, and society. A must read for anyone who wants to try to understand how slavery could have existed in virtually all early cultures and into modern times.

A good book to start understanding Roman Slavery. It's readable, well documented, with a good bibliography.
It's not the first I have read but I wish it had been. Any student of Roman history will finish it with a decent understanding of an important part of life and times of this segment of Roman history
