If you are teaching undergraduates or even graduate students who may not have the language skills to read in the original texts this book is a good addition to other sources books all ready on the topic or related topics. Reading original material related to slavery helps bridge the gap between pop culture understanding, New World incarnations, and ideas that students come to class with.
I found that Wiedemann offered a lot of new material so it works as a good additional book even if I might translate a few things differently myself. It has earned a well-respected place in my academic home library.
Beyond that very pressing problem, this is a useful tool for primary source research on slavery in Greece and Rome. The translations look fine, often include glosses of Greek and Latin terms, are are grouped into important themes.
