The Abolition of the Slave Trade in the South Atlantic: Portugal, Brazil and the Issue of the Smuggling of Africans

Gilberto da Silva Guizelin About the author


This article deals with the issue of the abolition of the slave trade in the South Atlantic. It is important to say that this study does not deal with this discussion from the exclusive framework of the diplomatic relations between Great Britain and Brazil regarding the question of slave trade, it is also based on the traditional relations developed between Portugal and Brazil in respect to that same question in the mid-nineteenth century.
