Transcript THE ANCIENT LOWLY A History of the Ancient Working People from the Earliest Known Period to the Adoption of Christianity by Constantine By C. Osborne Ward. The contents of this work impresses one with the conviction that almost a life-time of labor must have been spent in gathering the information and weaving it into an intelligible narrative. From the authorities quoted, Ward seems to have been acquainted with the whole range of Greek and Roman literature throwing light on the life of the ancient lowly, as well as tablets, inscription and rare parchments of these and other countries. The formidable sources of information which he cites remind one of the exhaustive researches of Buckle in English history, Darwin in biology and Marx in economics. As Morgan's "Ancient Society*' gives the historical facts of man's ascent from the lowest stages of savagery through communism to the dawn of civilization, Ward takes up the hitsoric thread with the appearance of civilization but with this difference; Morgan traced the development of institutions—property, government, the family, etc., while Ward portrays the economic conditions, the social status, forms of organization, strikes and rebellions of the ancient working classes. The book is unique in its field, for the information given can, so far as we know, be found in no other work. It will perhaps come as a surprise to some to know that some of the revolts of the slaves and other workers of antiquity reached such proportions as to rock empires and threaten the privileges of the ruling classes who lived on their toil. Spartacus, a Roman gladiator, broke his chains and field to the mountains of Italy, gathering an army of over 300,000 slaves and defeating the Romans in many battles before he was finally crushed. Ward also tells in full detail of the ancient trade unions, and of their intimate connection with the early Christian church, before this was captured by the ruling classes under Constantine.
