BANDEIRA, Luiz Alberto Moniz. O Barão de Rothschild e a questão do Acre. Rev. bras. polít. int. [online]. 2000, vol.43, n.2, pp. 150-169. ISSN 0034-7329.

The author reconstructs the history of the Brazilian state of Acre, emphasizing foreign interests which were underneath the quarrel between Brazil and Bolivia. Tension increased in the region because, on the one hand, Bolivia rented the land to the Bolivian Syndicate, an anglo-american company, and on the other hand, the Brazilian Foreign Affairs Minister, Rio Branco, decided to claim sovereignty over the territory. The ambivalent Rothschild comes up in this setting, defending a peaceful solution through the arbitration of Great Britain.

Keywords : Border conflict; South America; Chartered company; Rothschild.
