1 Stuart B. Schwartz - SLAVES, PEASANTS, AND REBELS: Reconsidering Brazilian Slavery -

University of Illinois Press - 1992 - (Hard Cover - W/Dust Jacket) - Used - Very Good - (Hard Cover & Dust Jacket, Very Good) - (Slavery in Brazil) - 

Slavery was abolished in Brazil on May 13, 1888, making it the last colony in the Western Hemisphere to do so. One of the reason emancipation took so long, maybe because, during the Eighteenth Century, Brazil was Portugal's central most-important asset in the New World. This volume is a thoroughly researched, clearly written, fact-packed (174) page study. The author's angle of vision sets events in context accessibly enough to fascinate readers of all levels. Additionally, he demonstrates the complexity of the slave system through a reconsideration of the themes of work, resistance, kinship, and relations between slaves and peasants. Finely, the author provides new insight into the shifting power relationship, in Brazil, between slaves and masters that constantly reshaped the contours of the country's society to what it is today.
