In this surprising book we find out that slavery is nearly as old as humankind and almost as universal. From the ancient tribes of Mesopotamia up to the 1980s in some parts of the world, almost every race has had its slaves, and its masters too. Even today there are some people who buy, own, and sell other people! All Times, All Peoples shows how slaves lived in different cultures and what roles they played, how they felt about their bondage, and in what complex ways many of them fought - and died - to be free. Leonard Everett Fisher's powerful drawings add graphic dimension to Milton Meltzer's ancient, modern, and terrible story.
