Freedom, Volume 1: Freedom in the Making Of Western Culture


Freedom, Volume 1: Freedom in the Making Of Western Culture Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

A great (both in reach and accomplishment) piece of work by the distinguished sociologist (Harvard U.), volume 1 of the projected two- volume history of freedom traces the evolution of freedom from Greece in the sixth and fifth centuries BC through the permutations wrought by imperial Rome and the Middle Ages. Unsurprisingly, the Jamaican- born Patterson, long-concerned with the problems of oppression in both his early novels and later analytic studies, is particularly good on the relationship between the birth of freedom and the institution of slavery.
