"This brilliant monograph has long reigned as the premier treatment on the origins of Brazilian independence. It has no equal and richly deserves a new readership." -- Thomas Skidmore, Brown University

"This attractive edition should make the Luso-Brazilian world of the late eighteenth century more accessible to English-language readers, especially those interested in the empires of the Atlantic World." --Mary Karash, Oakland University, Rochester, Michigan
