Enslaving Connections by Jose C. Curto
Book DescriptionThis unique collection of twelve essays by internationally known scholars deals with the important, but under-explored, topic of the transatlantic linkages between western Africa and Brazil during the era of the slave trade (c. 1600-1850). Divided into three major parts, the collection focuses in the first section on the Portuguese-Brazilian slave trade. The second section examines the impact of western Africans on the making of colonial and post-independence Brazil. The final section explores the effects of Brazil and Afro-Brazilians on western Africa. This important volume of cutting-edge research and analysis makes a significant contribution to our understanding of the history of slavery in the Americas.
