This volume of essays, originating in papers written for the Seventh International Economic History Congress (Edinburgh, 13-19 August 1978), provides a summary of the available evidence for non-slave labour in antiquity and a bibliographical guide. In addition, it advances novel interpretations concerning, for example, the composition of the 'labouring class', the relation between slave and peasant systems of production and the importance of free dependent labour in the Western Roman provinces.
Very good condition. There is some very slight creasing to the cover but otherwise the covers and pages are clean and undamaged and the binding tight. A very nice copy with no obvious sign of being read.
