Summary
This book describes the slow breakdown of Brazil's rural patriarchal society and the rise of power of the cities. Topics covered in this book include architecture, home life, the role of women, the position of the slave, the development of the merchant class, the influence of the Orient versus the Enlightenment, the breakdown of strict racial castes, and the economic factors that changed Brazil from a relatively isolated nation to one in the mainstream of western civilization
