HONORATO, Cezar Teixeira. Ports and port cities: a few historiographic considerations. Almanack [online]. 2019, n.21, pp.63-97.  Epub Apr 15, 2019. ISSN 2236-4633.

This article presents considerations about the historiography related to the Pereira Passos reforms and the works of the port of Rio de Janeiro. Initially, it presents the studies that focused on the Brazilian port cities from the second half of the nineteenth century to the beginning of the twentieth century. In the fundamental argumentation, we criticize the revisionism present in the most recent works on the subject.

Keywords : Historiography; port cities; Rio de Janeiro.
