Home Browse Books Book details, The Revolt of the Whip. Although I hope to bring new information and insights to the Revolt of the Whip -a spectacular revolt in the Brazilian navy by largely black crews against an all-white officer corps in 1910-I am writing for a primarily American audience. Such readers might wonder whether there are similar events in the history of the United States. Unsurprisingly, there are no precise parallels in the American experience to the events described in the following pages, but three incidents in our own history deal with similar racial themes on the high seas or in the US Navy.

The Revolt of the Whip. Brazil, we learn, is a wildly enthralling country with a vast racial background, an enormous amount of agricultural opportunity, and a generally laissez-faire attitude; its influence on the rest of the world is substantial.

This short book brings to life a unique and spectacular set of events in Latin American history.

Following the collapse of the revolt, the king's concessions were quickly revoked, but the rebellion is significant because it marked the beginning of the end of serfdom in medieval England. In Russia, the slaves were usually classified as kholops. A kholop's master had unlimited power over his life. 3 São Tomé and Príncipe. 4 South America and the Caribbean.

This short book brings to life a unique and spectacular set of events in Latin American history. In November 1910, shortly after the inauguration of Brazilian President Hermes da Fonseca, ordinary sailors killed several officers and seized control of major new combat vessels, including two of the most powerful battleships ever produced, and commenced bombing Rio de Janeiro. The mutineers, led by an Afro-Brazilian and mostly black themselves, demanded greater rights―above all the abolition of flogging in the Brazilian navy, the last Western navy to tolerate it. This form of torture was closely associated in the sailors' minds with slavery, which had only been prohibited in Brazil in 1888. These events and the scandals that followed initiated a sustained debate about the role of race and class in Brazilian society and the extent to which Brazil could claim to be a modern nation. The commemoration of the centenary of the mutiny in 2010 saw the country still divided about the meaning of the Revolt of the Whip.
