The Legal Understanding of Slavery

Jean Allain

Oxford University Press

This chapter presents the response of Professor Kevin Bales to the chapter written by Professor Orlando Patterson (Chapter 17), where the latter discussed the way slavery is defined and classified in both law and in public opinion. It notes that Patterson also critiqued Bales' work, which Bales discusses in this chapter. This chapter also addresses the wider and more relevant issue of Patterson's limited alternative definition of slavery.
