In the final volume of his trilogy of works exploring Catholic social teachings, John Perry proposes an examination of Catholic responses to slavery.

Perry takes us through the difficult story of slavery in the Christian experience, from its biblical treatment, to colonial history in the 17th and 18th centuries, to insidious practices of forced labour and human trafficking today.

This is a provocative and challenging book, filled with theological interpretation and examples of accommodation of a practice that has never fully disappeared, even though international laws and ethical certitudes prevail.
