Despite these declarations, which became fundamental legal principles in the
countries where they were adopted, the idea of human rights being universal was
not widely recognised. These rights only applied to citizens of nations who were

history of slavery in the United States has been the subject of hundreds of works
over the years, but with the important exception of Randolph B. Campbell's 1989

possession of a slave owner from birth. Equally, practices of selling children into

different countries and cultures. The phenomenon of 'child slavery' has been
persistent, even after the formal international legal abolition of slavery in the 19th
century in most parts of the world. 'Modern' forms of child slavery may include, for
