The only accounts of slavery that exist were written by free men. Weilers detailed study examines the nature of ancient slavery from a range of perspectives, including historical and anthropological, and also makes comparison throughout with the more recent experiences of slaves and ex-slaves in America and the Caribbean. Following a discussion of the terminology and extent of slavery in Greece and Rome, Weiler considers the ways in which slavery could be terminated, including escape and emancipation, using literary, epigraphic and philosophical sources.
