This podcast reviews the book: THE ROMAN GUIDE TO SLAVE MANAGMENT.

Rob interviews the author and reads excerpts from the book.

The Roman Guide to Slave Management, is a sly, subversive guide to the realities of servitude in ancient Rome. Cambridge scholar Jerry Toner uses Falx, his fictional but true-to-life creation, to describe where and how to Romans bought slaves, how they could tell an obedient worker from a troublemaker, and even how the ruling class reacted to the inevitable slave revolts. Toner also adds commentary throughout, analyzing the callous words and casual brutality of Falx and his compatriots and putting it all in context for the modern reader.

A new book is planned for his protagonist that may include a grand tour of the Roman Empire.
