Stanford University Press

This chapter examines the political crisis of 1871 and the defeat of the Conservative Party of Brazil. It discusses the administration of José Maria da Silva Paranhos, the Viscount of Rio Branco, the issues concerning elemento servil and the legacy of the debates of 1871. This chapter also describes how the engorged executive and interventionist monarch brought centralized, authoritarian rule to an unprecedented triumph which led to the ruins of the party's tradition of a constitutional, representative regime.

Keywords:   political crisis, Conservative Party, Brazil, Viscount of Rio Branco, element servil, interventionist monarch, authoritarian rule, representative regime
