Freedom by Orlando Patterson

"Freedom" is an in-depth exploration of the concept of freedom throughout human history, beginning with ancient civilizations and leading up to modern times. The author analyzes how the idea has evolved and been interpreted by different cultures and societies, arguing that freedom is a socio-cultural construct rather than an inherent human right. The book also explores the paradoxical relationship between freedom and slavery, suggesting that the concept of freedom often emerged from societies where slavery was prevalent.
