Summary
"First book-length comparison of abolitionist movements, based on published sources and secondary literature, argues that slaveholders' and slaves' different views in the two places stemmed from Americans' religious inspiration, Brazilians' location inside slave territory, and white Americans' respect for a vocal black community. The crucial difference was American push through abolitionism toward reconstruction, in contrast to the Brazilian single-issue focus on abolition. Narrower in analysis of Brazilian ideology than Azevedo's own pioneering book on 19th-century debates over labor and social control (see HLAS 52:2971), and doesn't fully confront revisionist arguments that Brazilian slave resistance, more than abolitionists, precipitated formal abolition"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58.
