Throughout history, civilizations have sought to dominate each other for riches and glory, the conquered often being forced into slavery by their aggressors. Western expansion prospered on a foundation of institutionalized slavery, causing the 400 year African diaspora. This work delves into the practice of forced labor in the great empires and kingdoms of China, Persia, South America, India, and others around the world.
