Description
 
Since the beginning of civilization there have been slaves. Men & women, young & old, black & white. In ancient Babylon, you might have been enslaved as punishment for a crime. In Africa, you might have been sold into slavery in America. In England, your parents might have sold you into slavery to pay off a debt. Today in Pakistan, you could be forced, along with thousands of others, to stitch together soccer balls. Here, Watkins traces the  journeys & trials of slaves around the world & throughout time. He not only chronicles the terrible legacy of human oppression, he also champions those who fought against it -- from Spartacus to Frederick Douglass to Iqbal Masih -- helping to shape slave-free nations for future generations to inherit. Illustrations.
