If we have learned anything about slavery from the ancient Greeks to the present, it is that slavery is not about the type of labor being done, but the fact of forced labor without consent.
Richard Wade has a good book, "Slavery in the Cities," and Richard Starobin has a book on industrial slavery in the antebellum south. Personally, I always thought it would have been a no-brainer to use slaves in the silver and gold mines out west, because there is only one way in and one way out, and they are easily controlled.
