CARACTERÍSTICAS DEMOGRÁFICAS DOS ESCRAVOS EM ARAXÁ (MG), 1816-1888
Déborah Oliveira Martins dos Reis
This work is based on inventories and manuscript censuses (1831-32) and cover the community of Araxá, in the province of Minas Gerais, between 1816 and 1888. We deal with demographic elements (sex, age, origin) of the slave population and present some of the basic elements concerning the slaveholding structure in Araxá. The question of slave natural reproduction and the slave trade are considered. Before, we show the controversy about the economic and demography of slavery in Minas Gerais in the nineteenth century, when the economy in the province was diversified and oriented largely toward domestic markets. In special, revisionist studies are presented. Araxá was an import part of this economy of Minas Gerais.
