Beginning in eastern Brazil in the mid-seventeenth century, Karwan Fatah-Black and Pepijn Brandon branch out from the Iberian to the Dutch Atlantic and into Africa, follow­ ing their story up through the late eighteenth century. The next two chap­ ters by John Donoghue and Anna Suranyi explore the seventeenth century English Atlantic, focusing on unfree labor in Britain, Ireland, Africa, and the West Indies. The book ends in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries with Elizabeth Heath’s work on French Guadeloupe, an island that remains a French colony to this very day.

Free Spanish Emigration to America Given the importance of indenture as a form of labor coercion in the establishment of England and France’s American empires, it is worth asking why this was not the case for Spanish America. Much of the answer lies in the significant opportunities presented by the human and mineral resources of the Caribbean and mainland Spanish colonies compared with those resources in North America or the Lesser Antilles before 1650. Another important factor was the Spanish crown’s policies toward emigration and toward labor by its diverse colonial subjects.

Rafael Chambouleyron’s essay on the Maranhão region of Brazil (ca. 1640– 1755) offers a case study of the complex interplay between an imperial state and private interests in a frontier area. In territory that was still largely in indig­ enous control, the Portuguese crown engaged in warfare with a “double dimen­ sion”: to bring native groups under crown control and to acquire slaves. Crown officials also used policy allowing or prohibiting indigenous slavery as a tool to contend with Portuguese settlers and Jesuit missionaries over access to native laborers.
