    In Inhuman Bondage, David Brion Davis sums up a lifetime of insight. He looks at slavery in the American South; the rise of the Cotton Kingdom; the daily life of slaves; the destructive internal long-distance slave trade; the sexual exploitation of slaves; the emergence of an African-American culture; and much more. A definitive history by a writer deeply immersed in the subject, Inhuman Bondage links together the profits of slavery, the pain of the enslaved, and the legacy of racism.

    Would you listen to Inhuman Bondage again? Why?

    I would like to listen to some parts again to refresh my memory in certain events.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It gives an overall picture of slavery in history. It is a thought provoking story. Humans can be very inhuman towards other living beings including humans. Even today slavery exists in less cruel forms, especially in the form of various exploitative situations.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Civil war description.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Inhuman treatment to slaves by way of physical punishments are very sad.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a good source of information for any person who is interested in history.

    Since Darwin's day, we've been told that sexual monogamy comes naturally to our species. Mainstream science - as well as religious and cultural institutions - has maintained that men and women evolved in families in which a man's possessions and protection were exchanged for a woman's fertility and fidelity. But this narrative is collapsing....

    What did you love best about Sex at Dawn?

    This evolutionary theory explain lots of issues related to modern day sexuality.


    Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    narrator's performance is outstanding.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    definitely yes, but practically you can't do it one go as the book is very comprehensive and runs for several hours.
