Most historians of slavery don't know how lucky they are. The majority of scholars
concerned with slavery focus on the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, the
legal slave trade of the period, and its aftermath. For these scholars, the historical
period can be clearly demarcated by the legislative moments when the slave
trade or slavery itself was abolished within states or empires. The scholar of
