Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Slaves played an important role in the everyday life of ancient Greece and Rome, where they worked in the homes of wealthy families, made clothing, grew vegetables, cooked meals, created armor and statues, labored in mines and fought as gladiators. This volume introduces readers to the inception of slavery in ancient civilizations and discusses the daily lives of slaves, their treatment in society, their role in arena games, and the eventual dissolution of the institution of slavery. The author details where slaves came from, how they were treated by their owners and other members of society, how they affected the local economy, how they earned their freedom and how the church reacted to them. A useful reference, the book includes full color photos and illustrations, maps, interesting facts, a timeline, a glossary, a list of books for further reading, a list of on-line resources and an index. This fascinating look at slavery during the ancient times will provide a worthwhile reading experience for youngsters. 2000, Franklin Watts, $24.00. Ages 9 to 12. Reviewer: Debra Briatico
School Library Journal
Gr 4-6-These titles treat slavery in their respective venues. Greece and Rome discusses the dependence of those societies on slavery as an institution through its decline. In tandem with an attractive, open layout, judicious use of maps, photographs, and reproductions serves to break up the dry text, which communicates the facts clearly, but without much verve. Child Slavery is a much more readable volume, due in part to its reliance on personal narratives. Five chapters give an overview of contemporary child slavery, the idea of children as property, domestic slavery, work in factories and sweat shops, and agricultural servitude. The scope and range of the practice are truly shocking, as is the extent of the exploitation in the United States, where many children work as migrant laborers or in sweatshops. As attractively laid out as its companion volume, Child Slavery includes numerous black-and-white and color photographs of exploited young people, guaranteed to raise readers' level of consciousness. While neither volume is as forceful in impact as James Haskins's Bound for America (Lothrop, 1999), both provide sound information on an unfortunately timeless topic.-Ann Welton, Terminal Park Elementary School, Auburn, WA Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
