Notes:
336 p., Chapter 3, "Race and citizenship in the New Republics," examines Brazil, Cuba, and the United States as three examples of distinct processes of emancipation. The chapter argues that the differences in the nature of slavery in these societies, along with different processes of emancipation, had important implications for the ways that race and citizenship were constituted in post-emancipation societies.
