This chapter is Patterson's response to Bales', who previously responded to Patterson's critique. Patterson emphasizes that his primary concern with Bales' work is that his definition of slavery is too broad, and as a result it covers a vast number of people. Patterson further clarifies other assertions Bales made, some of which involve trend estimates and the number of people in slavery.

Keywords: definition of slavery; trend estimates; people in slavery; response
