This book is divided into three parts. The first two chapters provide an introduction to the historical problem of early medieval slavery and a short history of Bavaria to provide background information. The next six chapters deal with a series of topics, which provide a complete historical overview of the institutions and conditions of slavery. This historical analysis is based upon an extensive collection of primary documents, each referenced in the text as it occurs in the discussion. These documents are then provided in English translation in the final three chapters of the volume.
