Research on slavery, from its early roots in Mesopotamia to its occurrence in the United States, is made easy with the Almanac. The Almanac offers 12 subject chapters on slavery throughout the world. Also included are sidebars, further reading sections, index, glossary, "Words to Know" section, timeline and 50 photographs.
(a starred review): "The presentation is balanced and credit is given to Quakers and abolitionists who brought about the end of slavery in Europe and the United States. For students who are looking for a broad understanding of the history of slavery or who want to learn more about slavery in the history of the United States, these are excellent resources. Highly Recommended."
