Kurzbeschreibung

1. September 2001 Latin American Silhouettes
This virtually unknown, insightful account by a highly intelligent, observant and forthright Frenchwoman of her decade-long stay in Brazil during the 1850s provides a remarkable firsthand view of a slaveocrat society. In an effort to improve their family's fortune, enterprising and highspirited young Parisian Adele Toussaint-Samson traveled with her husband from France to Brazil in the mid 1800s. While there, she wrote of her experiences, painting a vivid and detailed portrait of the reality of slavery, gender relations. and daily life in mid-nineteenth century Brazil. Translated into English by her daughter Emma in 1891, Toussaint's book is one of few first person accounts by a female sojourner in Latin America during this period. This 124-page eminently readable primary document provides a firsthand view of a slaveholding society, describing both men and women, slave and free, rich and poor. The introduction to a carefully annotated re-edition of this tale not only puts the book into the context of Brazilian history, including questions of gender relations and of slavery, but also confronts such problems as who the author really was and precisely where and when many events occurred, illuminating the nature of historical research. Well written and lively, A Parisian in Brazil is an excellent resource for courses on Latin America, women in Latin America, and Brazilian history.

Pressestimmen

Nineteenth-century Brazil and 'the imperial gaze' are both restored to life in this provoking, occasionally troubling, but always engaging memoir. A Parisian in Brazil is a vivid reminder that the past is indeed another country; and the Brazilian past, so powerfully shaped by the violence and oppression of slavery, perhaps more than most. Recommendedddd -- George Reid Andrews, University of Pittsburgh A Parisian in Brazil is a delightful analysis of life in mid-nineteenth-century Rio de Janeiro through the eyes of Adele Toussaint-Samson, a young Parisian with a sharp eye for detail and the insightfulness of a seasoned anthropologist. Highly recommended for class use in courses in Brazilian and Latin American Studies as well as those on race relations. -- Robert M. Levine, University of Miami June Hahner has done an important service in bringing the work of Toussaint-Samson to light. We can now all enjoy the writings of a Frenchwoman resident in mid-nineteenth-century Rio, and all her wonder, fear, biases, and appreciation of the lives of Brazilian men and women, both slave and free. -- Susan M. Socolow, Emory University A fascinating and unique insight into 1850s Brazil.
