Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This two-volume encyclopedia provides information on different kinds of human bondage--including serfdom, peonage, coolie status, and conscription under government corvee--throughout the world. It also covers the full array of antislavery movements within the context of a universal historical phenomenon. More organized and accessible than either The Historical Encyclopedia of World Slavery (LJ 2/15/98) or A Historical Guide to World Slavery (LJ 4/1/98), two recent references on this subject, it also includes more entries and has more academic contributors (212), though they are less diverse. This encyclopedia features excellent cross references, lengthy and detailed entries (e.g., "Demographic Analysis of Slaves and Slavery," "Perspectives on Slavery"), and signed bibliographies for each entry. The second volume provides a useful "Synoptic Outline of Entries" and a global "Timeline of Slavery." The overall bibliography is selective and shorter than others in the field, but the excellent index is longer and more detailed. A welcome addition to the reference collection on slavery in every library.--Edward G. McCormack, Univ. of Southern Mississippi Gulf Coast Lib., Long Beach
School Library Journal
Gr 9 Up-Admirably comprehensive and scholarly, and splendidly organized, this encyclopedia surveys slavery throughout the world and reflects the most recent research on its many aspects, past and present. Similar in purpose, structure, and layout to Junius P. Rodriguez's The Historical Encyclopedia of World Slavery (ABC-CLIO, 1998), this publication has several features that make it easier to use than that resource. An alphabetical list of entries at the beginning of volume one and a synoptic or topical outline of entries at the end of the second volume make searching for specific information comparatively easy. The 25 excellent outline maps of world slavery and many small photos, prints, and art reproductions enhance the text. Both sets offer an impressive list of academic contributors, a lengthy bibliography, and detailed index. While many subjects are effectively covered in both encyclopedias, the Macmillan editors have chosen more inclusive topics, grouping several essays under general headings such as "Abolition and Anti-Slavery Movements," "Christianity," "Historiography of Slavery," and "Law." It is also helpful to find the writers in this encyclopedia listed with the entry titles for which they are responsible. Altogether, the Macmillan work is better organized and is recommended as a first purchase or as a valuable complement to Rodriguez's book.-Shirley Wilton, Ocean County College, Toms River, NJ Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
Booknews
This encyclopedia for general readers covers all aspects of the history of human slavery in Asia, Europe, Africa, the Americas, and the United States. Entries include biographies of slaves, abolitionists, and defenders of slavery; details of living conditions; descriptions of societies and movements, religious beliefs and practices, and the arts; and discussions of types of slavery, resistance and rebellion, interpretations of slavery, law and emancipation, the operation of slavery, and theory and politics. Specific topics include slavery in film and television; literature of slavery; palace slaves in the Middle East; prostitution; and contemporary forms of slavery. Maps, a timeline, and a synoptic outline of entries are included. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
