Abstract

Dale Torston Graden has tackled the large topic of Brazilian abolitionism, wisely seeing it as a bundle of multiple stories, each with its own causation. The reality is complex and can only be unraveled by a careful exploration of these stories. This is all the more difficult in a book that is part of a "series of course adoption books on Latin America," because of the need to give the exposition a certain clarity that may perforce simplify to some degree the complexities of the reality behind the stories. The result is well worth the effort the author clearly devoted to it.
