about

This book provides new perspectives into a subject that historians have largely overlooked. The contributors use fresh archival research from Spain, Portugal, Brazil, Bolivia, Mexico, and the Philippines to examine the lives of slaves and farmworkers as well as self-serving magistrates, bishops, and traders in contraband. The authors show that corruption was a powerful discourse in the Atlantic world. Investigative judges could dismiss culprits, jail them, or, sometimes, have them ?garroted and their corpses publicly displayed.?

Christoph Rosenmüller is a professor of Latin American history at Middle Tennessee State University in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, and a former Fulbright fellow. He is also the author of Patrons, Partisans, and Palace Intrigues: The Court Society of Colonial Mexico, 1702?1710.
