  • The Abolition of Slavery in Brazilby David Baronov

    ABC-CLIO 2000; US$ 168.00

    The persistence of a raced-based division of labor has been a compelling reality in all former slave societies in the Americas. One can trace this to nineteenth-century abolition movements across the Americas which did not lead to (and were not intended to result in) a transition from race-based slave labor to race-neutral wage labor for former slaves.... more...

  • African-Brazilian Culture and Regional Identity in Bahia, Brazilby Scott Ickes

    University Press of Florida 2013; US$ 74.95

    Examines how in the middle of the twentieth century, Bahian elites began to recognize African-Bahian cultural practices as essential components of Bahian regional identity.

  • African Roots, Brazilian Ritesby Cheryl Sterling

    Palgrave Macmillan 2012; US$ 90.00

  • The Amazon Journal of Roger Casementby Angus Mitchell

    The Lilliput Press 1997; US$ 14.57

    "He could tell you things! Things I've tried to forget; thing I never did know." Joseph Conrad "...his was a heroic nature. I should like to write upon him subtly, so that his enemies would think I was with them till they finished my book and rose from reading it to call him a hero. He has the appeal of a broken archangel." T.E. Lawrence British... more...

  • Amazon Peasant Societies in a Changing Environmentby Rui Murrieta; Walter Neves

    Springer 2008; US$ 179.00

This book addresses a comprehensive range of questions from the politics of conservation and sustainable development to the organization of women's work and the diet and health of Amazonian people. more...

  • Amazonian Routesby Heather Roller

    Stanford University Press 2014; US$ 70.00

    This book reconstructs the world of eighteenth-century Amazonia to argue that indigenous mobility did not undermine settlement or community. In doing so, it revises longstanding views of native Amazonians as perpetual wanderers, lacking attachment to place and likely to flee at the slightest provocation. Instead, native Amazonians used traditional... more...

  • Anxious Pleasuresby Thomas Gregor

    University of Chicago Press 2008; US$ 45.00

    "Good fish get dull but sex is always fun." So say the Mehinaku people of Brazil. But Thomas Gregor shows that sex brings a supreme ambiguity to the villagers' lives. In their elaborate rituals—especially those practiced by the men in their secret societies—the Mehinaku give expression to a system of symbols reminiscent of psychosexual... more...
