Description

This book presents a new approach to nineteenth-century Atlantic history by extending the analytical perspective of the second slavery to questions of empire, colonialism, and slavery. With a focus on Latin America, Brazil, the Spanish Caribbean, and the United States, international scholars examine relations among empires, between empires and colonies, and within colonies as parts of processes of global economic and political restructuring. By treating metropolis-colony relations within the framework of the modern world-economy, the contributors call attention to the political, economic, and cultural interdependence and interaction of global and local forces shaping the Atlantic world. They reinterpret as specific local responses to global processes the conflicts between empires, within imperial relations, the formation of national states, the creation of new zones of agricultural production and the decline of old ones, and the emergence of liberal ideologies and institutions.

Atlantic Transformations
FERNAND BRAUDEL CENTER
STUDIES IN HISTORICAL SOCIAL SCIENCE
Series Editor: Richard E. Lee
The Fernand Braudel Center Studies in Historical Social Science publishes works that address theoretical and empirical questions produced by scholars in or through the Fernand Braudel Center or who share its approach and concerns. It specifically promotes works that contribute to the development of the world-systems perspective engaging a holistic and relational vision of the world—the modern world-system—implicit in historical social science, which at once takes into consideration structures (long-term regularities) and change (history). With the intellectual boundaries within the sciences/social sciences/humanities structure collapsing in the work scholars actually do, this series offers a venue for a wide range of research that confronts the dilemmas of producing relevant accounts of historical processes in the context of the rapidly changing structures of both the social and academic world. The series includes monographs, colloquia, and collections of essays organized around specific themes.

PREFACE
T he concept of the “second slavery” developed as an attempt to account for the extraordinary expansion of new frontiers of slave commodity production—cotton in the US South, sugar in Cuba, and coffee in Brazil—and their role in the economic and political transformations of the nineteenth-century world-economy. The zones of the second slavery are of special interest because their development runs counter to the prevailing interpretations of slavery in the Americas, which regard slavery as incompatible with a modern industrial capitalist economy or liberal political ideas and values, or both. Such assumptions about the archaic or anachronistic character of slavery in the modern world have long been mobilized in the context of national narratives constructed around notions of linear time and progress. Within such accounts slavery is destined to disappear with the emergence of liberal capitalist modernity, with the result that the persistence or absence of slavery becomes a marker of national backwardness or national progress.
Over the past several decades, the examination of slavery and abolition within the Atlantic system—from the perspective of the “second slavery”—has broken new ground. This approach does not treat slavery as the inevitable repetition of processes that had already been played out in British abolition, the inevitable incompatibility of slavery with an industrialized free market economy and liberal ideas. Rather, it has been attentive to the ways in which Atlantic slavery was expanding and being remade as part of a new global economic and political order; indeed, the battles for and against slavery were being fought on a new terrain. Both liberal ideology and industrial capitalism and the pro-slavery forces arrayed against them were part of this complex and contradictory modernity.
The second slavery is a research perspective that continues to be deepened and broadened as it formulates new research problems and proposes new interpretations; indeed, it has been the subject of two previous volumes in this series and special issues of the journal Review . 1 The chapters presented in this book continue to explore these paths, and to address new questions and examine new terrain in order to come to terms with the economic and political transformations of the Atlantic world during the nineteenth century. The point that needs to be emphasized here is that the zones of the second slavery in the US South, Cuba and Brazil are the leading edges of the political and economic changes of the nineteenth century world-economy. They were at once the product of these changes and contributed to making them.
The chapters in this book broaden the scope of the second slavery perspective by examining the mutual interaction of global and local change in different locations and at different spatial and temporal scales. The chapters are particularly concerned with Spain, its colonial empire, and its slave system—especially in Cuba and Puerto Rico—as parts of the Atlantic world. Josep Fradera compares the structure of European empires and interimperial rivalries over the course of the nineteenth century and calls our attention to the interaction of imperial politics, colonialism, and slavery.
