How to use "Enslavement" in context?

There is no one definitive answer to the question of when and under what conditions slaves were enslaved. In general, it seems that slavery as we know it began in the ancient Near East, where captives were taken and enslaved over time, in part due to demand from the wealthy. Slavery in the classical world often arose from war, with captive populations taken as spoils. In the new world, African slaves were imported into the Americas, in large part because of their labor in the gold and diamond mines. The practice of enslaving people for their labor is known as human trafficking.

Slavery has a long and complicated history.
