"The spade-work of civilizing the world was done in the first two centuries of the Roman Empire, according to author R. H. Barrow, who goes on to remark that this labor-preparing the ground for Western civilization-is Rome's legacy to later generations. "What part did slavery play in this work?" asks the author of this intriguing book. "Was it so immoral, so degrading...as to hamper the work of Romanization? Or was it even an instrument in that very process, which was being carried forward by many influences?" SLAVERY IN THE ROMAN EMPIRE is Barrow's attempt to answer these provocative questions. This is a penetrating and vivid study that traces the process of enslavement to citizenship, and indicates along the way the issues involved for the individual and the Empire. One of the highlights of SLAVERY IN THE ROMAN EMPIRE is its description of Roman daily life. Readers are provided with windows into the imperial houses, where slave duties were subdivided with an amazing minuteness; the Roman world of business, where some slaves, often more skilled and knowledgeable than their masters, became rich and took on the roles of agents and contractors; and the organization and administration of townships, which, due to Roman attitudes toward clerical work (that it was beneath a Roman citizen), put slaves in some important and responsible positions. Chapters on how slaves came to Rome, on their work, on their inner and private life, and on manumission and the perpetual struggle to rise from slavery to freedom climax in the chapter, "The mingling of nations." Here, Barrow combines the studies of the first seven chapters and views Roman slavery in the larger context and estimates its effects on the health of the Empire."--BOOK JACKET
