Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Focusing on the period from 1840 to 1889, the author explores the specific ways in which granting protection, official positions, and other favours in exchange for political and personal loyalty worked to benefit the interests of wealthy Brazilians. The book is based pricipally on both the offical and private correspondence of politicians, judges and bureaucrats, using these materials to look in depth at political practice.

This is a masterful study: imaginatively conceived, solidly researched, tightly reasoned, clearly and forcefully written. Graham's conclusions will be challenged, but his work will endure.' The American Historical Review
