RE, Henrique Antonio. British Abolitionists’ Attempts to Prevent the Immigration of Chinese to Brazil in the Late Nineteenth Century. Varia hist. [online]. 2018, vol.34, n.66, pp.817-848. ISSN 1982-4343.

The article explores the British and Foreign Anti-Slavery Society’s attempts in the 1870s and 1880s to stop the Brazilian government’s ‘scheme’ to bring Chinese workers to the country. These efforts indicate that the question of slavery extrapolated national boundaries and confirms that Britain acted directly against Brazilian slavery until its final moments.

Keywords : Chinese immigration; Mission to China; British and Foreign Anti-Slavery Society.
