Críticas:

"[This] book will be a landmark in bringing Africa into the mix in Brazilian history." This book will be a landmark in bringing Africa into the mix in Brazilian history. (John Thornton, author of "Africa and Africans in the Making of the Atlantic World, 1400-1800") Sweet has mined an incredibly rich source of information in the Inquisition archives and produced an engaging study of the inner lives of Africans suffering under slavery in Brazil. His book will be a landmark in bringing Africa into the mix in Brazilian history.(John Thornton, Millersville University, author of "Africa and Africans in the Making of the Atlantic World, 1400-1800".) "A fascinating collection of evidence." -- "The Americas" "A fascinating book . . . of considerable importance. It not only contributes to a continuing debate about the nature of slavery, but is a powerful example of Atlantic history as it shows that the societies on both sides of the South Atlantic lived in a kind of spiritual intimacy that was not severed by the infamous middle passage." -- "History"

Reseña del editor:

Exploring the cultural lives of African slaves in the early colonial Portuguese world, with an emphasis on the more than one million Central Africans who survived the journey to Brazil, James Sweet lifts a curtain on their lives as Africans rather than incipient Brazilians. Focusing first on the cultures of Central Africa from which the slaves came - Ndembu, Imbangala, Kongo and others - Sweet identifies specific cultural rites and beliefs that survived their transplantation to the African-Portuguese diaspora, arguing that they did not give way to immediate creolization in the New World but remained distinctly African for some time. Slaves transferred many cultural practices from their homelands to Brazil, including kinship structures, divination rituals, judicial ordeals, ritual burials, dietary restrictions, and secret societies. Sweet demonstrates that the structures of many of these practices remained constant during this early period, although the meanings of the rituals were often transferred as slaves coped with their new environment and status. Religious rituals in particular became potent forms of protest against the institution of slavery and its hardships. In addition, Sweet examines how certain African beliefs and customs challenged and ultimately influenced Brazilian Catholicism. Sweet's analysis seeks to shed new light on African culture in Brazil's slave society while also enriching our understanding of the complex process of creolization and cultural survival.
