This paper examines the development of slavery and the slave trade in the New World. It points out when and why it developed, why slaves were particularly used as a labor force along with why Africans were used. Finally the paper explains if there was any possibility of resistance.
From the Paper:"Slavery can be defined as a condition in which human beings are owned by others as chattels. Slavery existed from the earliest times. In ancient Greece and Rome captives from conquered lands were the chief source of slaves who often had special skills, were well treated and could also be freed. The condition of slaves in later Roman times greatly worsened until the deteriorating economy led to the virtual disappearance of slaves and the emergence of serfs in Middle Ages. Slaving became a lucrative business in the sixteenth century when the European traders began to transport thousands of Africans to the Americas."
