In this study of slavery in Ancient Greece and Italy, Sir Moses Finley discuses how slave societies came into being and considers the moral, social and economic underpinings that allowed them to prosper. His comparision of ancient slave societies with their relatively modern counterparts in the new world opens a new perspective on the history of slavery, and the inquiry shows how ideological interests affect historical interpretation.
