Cross-Cultural Exchange in the Atlantic World
Though I have been skeptical of microhistories and the conflated conclusions that they tend to draw from extant data in the past, Cross-Cultural Exchange seems to deliver a new and radical? In some ways, this book felt similar to the inflammatory microhistory on Polish-Nazi collaboration authored by Jan Gross. Like John McNeill's Mosquito Empires, Cross-Cultural Exchange does not seek to answer questions or advance theories that cannot be supported without heavy citation from both primary and secondary sources.
Perhaps I am simply seduced as any good graduate student by the presence of lengthy footnotes, but it seems to me that the tighter focus and laborious citation present in both Mosquito Empires and Cross-Cultural Exchange offers a more stylistically convincing piece then the more conceptual arguments advanced by Parker's Military Revolution or Marks' Origins of the Modern World.
Though I was impressed and intrigued by many of the issues explored in this book, I was particularly interested in the significant political, economic, and social interaction between Brazil and Angola. It is in this area too that I believe Ferreira's use of microhistory truly shines.
Slavery in Brazil
Finally, I was struck by the collaborative element that seems to have existed for both native populations in Angola and in Brazil. The fact that Portugal was able to coopt some part of an existing slave trade in Angola was particularly disturbing.
In addition, I had incorrectly assumed that the triangular slave trades between Africa, New World colonies, and Old World imperial powers had been decidedly one sided. Considering the examples provided by Ferreira, however, it seems as though more than a few Brazilians and Africans benefited from the slave trade and, to a certain degree, from Portuguese colonization.
