It provides valuable insights into the fundamentalplace of slavery in the economies and social life of classical Greece, and includes penetrating analyses of the widely-held ancientideological justifications of slavery. A wide range of topics iscovered, including the development of slavery from Homer to theclassical period, the peculiar form of community slaves (the helots)found in Sparta, economic functions and the treatment of slaves inAthens, and the evidence for slaves' resistance.
