    One thought on “Spartacus and the Slave Wars: A Brief History with Documents”

    1. This is a great little book. After a short but comprehensive introduction that covers Roman slavery and slave rebellions, he collects excerpts from ancient texts and material evidence that help illustrate ancient slavery, slave rebellions, and the three slave wars which culminated in the Spartacus revolt of 73-71 BCE.

    3. Spartacus and the Slave Wars: A Brief History with Documents (The Bedford Series in History and Culture) by Brent D. Shaw (2001)

    4. I read it for school. A bunch of primary sources translated by the author. Mildly interesting. Nothing special.

    5. It's a good book of primary sources about the Greek slave wars. Not my favorite book ever, but reasonably interesting.

    6. I reread this for NaNoWriMo research. Excellent compilation of ancient authors' text in one volume.
