The Legacies of the Second Slavery

The Legacies of the Second Slavery

The Cotton and Coffee Economies of the United States and Brazil during the Reconstruction Era, 1865–1904

(p.11) 1 The Legacies of the Second Slavery
United States Reconstruction across the Americas

Rafael Marquese

University Press of Florida

Chapter 1 by Rafael Marquese compares the impact of the demise of slavery in the US and Brazil and the transformation of the coffee economies and cotton economies. Marquese connects American Reconstruction with larger global processes to explore the reorganization of the national state and American capitalism that took place in the Era of Globalization (1870–1914). He shows how “Second Slavery,” a concept articulated by Dale Tomich, provides a model for understanding both the integrated trajectory of slavery in Brazil and the United States and the ways the coffee plantationa and economies and the cotton plantations and economies of these nations interacted after emancipation.
