[All Times, All Peoples: A World History of Slavery is] serious prose, dry but inherently dramatic…. Although Meltzer makes an occasional broad statement ("It was Christopher Columbus who started the American slave trade") that may seem inadequately clarified, he writes for the most part with scrupulous attention to facts, his attitude as objective as it is possible to be when describing the bondage of human beings.
