Long Description

Why did slavery—an accepted evil for thousands of years—suddenly become regarded during the eighteenth century as an abomination so compelling that Western governments took up the cause of abolition in ways that transformed the modern world? Joseph C. Miller turns this classic question on its head by rethinking the very nature of slavery, arguing that it must be viewed generally as a process rather than as an institution. Tracing the global history of slaving over thousands of years, Miller reveals the shortcomings of Western narratives that define slavery by the same structures and power relations regardless of places and times, concluding instead that slaving is a process which can be understood fully only as imbedded in changing circumstances.

This is a rather minor change to help deal with a few issues we have been having.

The default mode now is to show pending product information if the accepted information is not available. This is the reverse of the previous default. If you don't want any pending information, add pending=no to your URL.

You can no longer updata in any field until the product field is populated. This means that the main product title field must have something in it. We have been getting to many updates of the product category without the name of the product so we have to simply delete the category update because we don't know what that is.

That is all that has changed.
