The expansion of tolerance : religion in Dutch Brazil (1624-1654) by Jonathan I Israel( )

17 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and Dutch and held by 1,895 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The history of tolerance in the early modern Dutch Republic is a topic that has fascinated generations of scholars, and continues to do so. Tolerance, in the long run, proved to be the best and most pragmatic solution to the problem of religious pluriformity, and, as the seventeenth century progressed, came to be regarded as a political virtue with clear social and, more importantly, economic benefits. Hence the Dutch West India Company exported this tradition of tolerance to its New World colonies, most notable to Dutch Brazil. This volume analyses the unprecedented degree of toleration in the colony known as New Holland between the arrival of the Dutch in 1624 and their surrender to the Portuguese in 1654. Special attention is devoted to the position of Sephardic Jews in Recife and Mauritsstad, and to Portuguese responses to religious tolerance."--Jacket
All can be saved : religious tolerance and salvation in the Iberian Atlantic world by Stuart B Schwartz( )

20 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and Spanish and held by 1,710 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It would seem unlikely that one could discover tolerant religious attitudes in Spain, Portugal, and the New World colonies during the era of the Inquisition, when enforcement of Catholic orthodoxy was widespread and brutal. Yet this groundbreaking book does exactly that. Drawing on a body of historical evidence - including records of the Inquisition itself - the historian Stuart Schwartz investigates the idea of religious tolerance and its evolution in the Hispanic world from 1500 to 1820. Focusing on the attitudes and beliefs of common people rather than those of intellectual elites, the author finds that no small segment of the population believed in freedom of conscience and rejected the exclusive validity of the Church." "The book explores various sources of tolerant attitudes, the challenges that the New World presented to religious orthodoxy, the complex relations between "popular" and "learned" culture, and many related topics. The volume concludes with a discussion of the relativist ideas that were taking hold elsewhere in Europe during this era."--Jacket
The Cambridge history of the native peoples of the Americas( Book )

in English and held by 1,280 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publisher description: The Cambridge History of the Native Peoples of the Americas, Volume II: Mesoamerica (Part One), gives a comprehensive and authoritative overview of all the important native civilizations of the Mesoamerican area, beginning with archaeological discussions of paleoindian, archaic and preclassic societies and continuing to the present. Fully illustrated and engagingly written, the book is divided into sections that discuss the native cultures of Mesoamerica before and after their first contact with the Europeans. The various chapters balance theoretical points of view as they trace the cultural history and evolutionary development of such groups as the Olmec, the Maya, the Aztec, the Zapotec, and the Tarascan. The chapters covering the prehistory of Mesoamerica offer explanations for the rise and fall of the Classic Maya, the Olmec, and the Aztec, giving multiple interpretations of debated topics, such as the nature of Olmec culture. Through specific discussions of the native peoples of the different regions of Mexico, the chapters on the period since the arrival of the Europeans address the themes of contact, exchange, transfer, survivals, continuities, resistance, and the emergence of modern nationalism and the nation-state

António Vieira and the Luso-Brazilian baroque by Thomas Cohen( )

3 editions published between 2000 and 2003 in English and held by 1,006 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Preacher, politician, natural law theorist, administrator, diplomat, polemicist, prophetic thinker: Vieira was all of these things, but nothing was more central to his self-definition than his role as missionary and pastor.

Victors and vanquished : Spanish and Nahua views of the Conquest of Mexico by Stuart B Schwartz( Book )

10 editions published between 2000 and 2018 in English and held by 741 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1519 Hernan Cortes and a small band of Spanish conquistadors overthrew the mighty Mexican empire of the Aztecs. Using excerpts primarily drawn from Bernal Diaz's 1632 account of the Spanish victory and testimonies - many recently uncovered - of indigenous Nahua survivors, Victors and Vanquished clearly demonstrates how personal interests, class and ethnic biases, and political considerations influenced the interpretation of these momentous events."--Jacket
Implicit understandings : observing, reporting, and reflecting on the encounters between Europeans and other peoples in the early modern era( Book )

23 editions published between 1994 and 2004 in English and held by 705 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume brings together the work of twenty historians, anthropologists, and literary scholars who have tried to examine the nature of the encounter between Europeans and the other peoples of the world from roughly 1450 to 1800, the early modern era. The book is world-wide in scope - ranging from Hawaii, Australia, and China to the Americas and Africa - but is unified by the central underlying theme that implicit understandings influence every culture's ideas about itself and others. These understandings, however, are changed by experience in a constantly shifting process in which both sides participate. This makes such encounters complex historical events and moments of 'discovery'. The scholars gathered here grapple with the questions of how we observe, and how observation and representation can reveal as much about ourselves as about those we observe
Sea of storms : a history of hurricanes in the greater Caribbean from Columbus to Katrina by Stuart B Schwartz( )

11 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 617 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The diverse cultures of the Caribbean have been shaped as much by hurricanes as they have by diplomacy, commerce, or the legacy of colonial rule. In this panoramic work of social history, Stuart Schwartz examines how Caribbean societies have responded to the dangers of hurricanes, and how these destructive storms have influenced the region's history, from the rise of plantations, to slavery and its abolition, to migrations, racial conflict, and war. Taking readers from the voyages of Columbus to the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, Schwartz looks at the ethical, political, and economic challenges that hurricanes posed to the Caribbean's indigenous populations and the different European peoples who ventured to the New World to exploit its riches. He describes how the United States provided the model for responding to environmental threats when it emerged as a major power and began to exert its influence over the Caribbean in the nineteenth century, and how the region's governments came to assume greater responsibilities for prevention and relief, efforts that by the end of the twentieth century were being questioned by free-market neoliberals. Schwartz sheds light on catastrophes like Katrina by framing them within a long and contentious history of human interaction with the natural world. Spanning more than five centuries and drawing on extensive archival research in Europe and the Americas, Sea of Storms emphasizes the continuing role of race, social inequality, and economic ideology in the shaping of our responses to natural disaster."--Publisher's Web site

"Early Brazil presents a collection of original sources, many published for the first time in English and some never before published in any language, that illustrates the process of conquest, colonization, and settlement in Brazil. The volume emphasizes the actions and interactions of the indigenous peoples, Portuguese, and Africans in the formation of the first extensive plantation colony based on slavery in the Americas, and it also includes documents that reveal the political, social, religious, and economic life of the colony. Original documents on early Brazilian history are difficult to find in English, and this collection will serve the interests of undergraduate students, as well as graduate students, who seek to make comparisons or to understand the history of Portuguese expansion"--Provided by publisher
