Description :

Language: English . Brand New Book. Throughout the nineteenth century the idyllic island of Fernando de Noronha, which lies two hundred miles off Brazil s northeastern coast, was home to Brazil s largest forced labor penal colony. In Punishment in Paradise Peter M. Beattie uses Noronha as a case study to understand nineteenth-century Brazil s varied social and cultural values, especially in relation to justice, class, color, civil condition, human rights and labor. As Brazil s slave population declined after 1850, the use of colonial-era disciplinary practices at Noronha-such as flogging and forced labor-stoked anxieties about human rights and Brazil s international image. Beattie contends that the treatment of slaves, convicts, and other social categories subject to coercive labor extraction were interconnected and that reforms that benefitted one of these categories made them harder to deny to others. In detailing Noronha s history and the end of slavery as part of an international expansion of human rights, Beattie places Brazil firmly in the purview of Atlantic history.

Synopsis : Throughout the nineteenth century the idyllic island of Fernando de Noronha, which lies two hundred miles off Brazil's northeastern coast, was home to Brazil's largest forced labor penal colony. In "Punishment in Paradise" Peter M. Beattie uses Noronha as a case study to understand nineteenth-century Brazil's varied social and cultural values, especially in relation to justice, class, color, civil condition, human rights and labor. As Brazil's slave population declined after 1850, the use of colonial-era disciplinary practices at Noronha--such as flogging and forced labor--stoked anxieties about human rights and Brazil's international image. Beattie contends that the treatment of slaves, convicts, and other social categories subject to coercive labor extraction were interconnected and that reforms that benefitted one of these categories made them harder to deny to others. In detailing Noronha's history and the end of slavery as part of an international expansion of human rights, Beattie places Brazil firmly in the purview of Atlantic history.

Synopsis: Peter M. Beattie provides a detailed examination of the nineteenth-century Brazilian island penal colony Fernando de Noronha, in which he shows how it serves as a metaphor for Brazilian society and was key to Brazil's abolishment of slavery.
