Marxist historian F. A. Ridley’s account of the revolt led by, among others, Thracian gladiator Spartacus, one of the prominent escaped slave leaders of the Third Servile War against the Roman Republic. Ridley places Spartacus and the uprising in the context of the social systems of antiquity; the rise of Rome as a world power; revolution and counter-revolution in antiquity; the rise of Christianity — and the Spartacist tradition of revolutionary history.
