    turn on "avoid growth" in cities (bottom right of the screen). And i find that representation is better than hereditary rule.

    Slavery is more of an answer to health problems. Your city will be even more unhappy for the next 15 turns.

    Lord Olleus is right, Representation is better than HR, especially with Caste System, so you can make some specialists to starve your city untill it's happy and then prevent further growth.

    You could use the cultural slider (if that is available), build city improvements (i.e. temple and theatre), use religion, garrison units...

    Actually...

    In many cases, the reason the city is unhappy is because of overcrowding. You use Slavery, the city gets another Happiness penalty. HOWEVER, the city is now less crowded, so the crowding penalty is removed (or lessened).

    Because of this, when you use Slavery, it is usually a "break even", as far as Happiness goes. (All that you really lose is the population.)

    If you lose more than 1 point of population, slavery will actually make your city happier. For example, if you use up 3 points of population, you're only adding 1 unhappiness for 10 turns, but you're getting rid of 3 unhappiness from population, so you'll be two points of population happier.

    When a problem comes along
    You must whip it
    Before the cream sits out too long
    You must whip it
    When something's going wrong
    You must whip it

    now whip it
    into shape
    shape it up
    get straight
    go forward
    move ahead
    try to detect it
    it's not too late
    to whip it
    whip it good !
