The Party of Order
Stanford University Press

This chapter examines the issues of political patronage, provincial politics, and foreign affairs in Brazil during the period from 1848 to 1853. It describes the provincial political milieu of the mid-century, discusses the costs and contradictions of political consolidation, and evaluates the local impact of the looming foreign-policy crises, particularly the African slave trade. This chapter also considers the failure of the saquaremas to resolve the conflicts between the orderly and ordering state they envisioned, the intervention of the emperor and the state's abuse in the hands of violent and competitive provincial oligarchies and the associated system of patronage and spoils.

Keywords:   political patronage, provincial politics, foreign affairs, Brazil, African slave trade, political consolidation, saquaremas, provincial oligarchies
