The Problem of Slavery in Western Culture by David Brion Davis

"The Problem of Slavery in Western Culture" is a comprehensive historical analysis of the cultural, moral, and intellectual dilemmas slavery posed to Western society. The book explores the paradox of a freedom-loving society that also allowed and justified human bondage, tracing the evolution of thought on slavery from ancient times to the late eighteenth century. It delves into the ways in which different societies have rationalized and confronted slavery, including religious, philosophical, and political perspectives, ultimately leading to the abolitionist movements.
