The trade in the living : the formation of Brazil in the South Atlantic, sixteenth to seventeenth centuries by Luiz Felipe de Alencastro( Book )

3 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The seventeenth-century missionary and diplomat Father Antônio Vieira once observed that Brazil was nourished, animated, sustained, served, and conserved by the ?sad blood? of the ?black and unfortunate souls? imported from Angola. In The Trade in the Living, Luiz Felipe de Alencastro demonstrates how the African slave trade was an essential element in the South Atlantic and in the ongoing cohesion of Portuguese America, while at the same time the concrete interests of Brazilian colonists, dependent on Angolan slaves, were often violently asserted in Africa, to ensure men and commodities continued to move back and forth across the Atlantic. In exposing this intricate and complementary relationship between two non-European continents, de Alencastro has fashioned a new and challenging examination of colonial Brazil, one that moves beyond its relationship with Portugal to discover a darker, hidden history

De l'Alzette à l'Amazone : Jean-Philippe Bettendorff et les jésuites en Amazonie portugaise (1661-1693) by Karl-Heinz Arenz( Book )

2 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in French and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This thesis analyses the introduction and the consolidation of the missionary project of the Society of Jesus in the Portuguese Amazon region in the 17th century, specifically between 1661 and 1693. This period, which has been neglected for a long time by historiography, is characterised by a deep controversy concerning the juridical status of the Amerindians who were evangelized by the Jesuits in separated villages, the aldeamentos. Father António Vieira's arrival, in 1653, at the strategically important colony of Maranhão and Grão-Pará only stirred up the quarrel because the settlers and the civil authorities claimed the Indians as servile labour force, specially as rowers and pickers of rain forest products. After a period of uncertainty, Father Jean-Philippe Bettendorff obtained, in 1686, the promulgation of a law that defined the working conditions of the Indian neophytes and gave a large autonomy to the aldeamentos. This missionary from Luxembourg was also an outstanding personality in the Amazon region as religious superior, chronicler, lawyer, economist and architect
Les relations entre l'Angola et le Congo-Kinshasa : de 1975 à 2002 by Lucien Epimi Guia( Book )

2 editions published in 2009 in Spanish and French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation studies the relations between Angola and Congo-Kinshasa from 1975 to 2002. It identifies and evaluates through a historical approach to international relations the nature and significance of those relations in interaction with the armed conflicts that took place in these countries during and after the Cold War. The main questions are examined along four axes: the international and regional contexts to which these relations belong, the position of Congo-Zaire about the Angolan conflict, Angola's behavior toward the conflict in Congo-Kinshasa, the prospects for the future. This work first shows that from 1975 until President Mobutu's fall in May 1997, the relations between Angola and Congo-Zaire were mainly conflicting, and second, that with President Mobutu's fall and the arrival of the Kabila presidents in Congo-Kinshasa, the dynamics of the armed conflicts in both countries resulted in a normalization of their relations

Analyse historique du processus de mégapolisation, étude comparative de São Paulo et Mumbai dans la seconde moitié du XXème siècle by Marie-Charlotte Belle( )

1 edition published in 2015 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This thesis has been exploring the historical process of megapolization (overdevelopment) of São Paulo in Brazil and Mumbai (ex-Bombay) in India since the world urban acceleration in the 1950s until today. The objective is to identify the mechanisms of megapolization through the examination of these two Southern cities. Each one is analyzed through three interrelated strategic factors: the political, economic and urban context that trigger and sustain their development. Global cities are strategic places for their nations and more generally for the developing countries. They support the emergence of these territories territories and an other development path. Considering them is therefore a strategic issue. At the time of the cities metropolization, this analysis takes on a particular dimension. Although, the São Paulo and Mumbai context and development diverge from other world cities in the northern hemisphere, their example sheds light on the pitfalls and answers to improve this urban development

Francisco Braga, compositeur brésilien : la vie et l'œuvre by Isaac Chueke( )

1 edition published in 2011 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Francisco Braga (1868-1945) has been a famous musician in his time: as composer, conductor and teacher, he held several and important positions in the Brazilian musical scenario, which suffered important changes from the beginning of the 20th century. Notwithstanding his ten-year period in Europe, he still remains virtually unknown to audiences abroad, a fact which proves to be also true among the new generations of musicians in his native country. This dissertation presents thus Braga's biography as well as the analysis of some of his orchestral works. Examining his career within the various musical contexts, we shall be able to better apprehend the significance of his artistic output. Included are a catalog of his compositions and various selected documents
