This chapter describes slave owners, their neighbors, and their slaves in Santos, Brazil. It suggests that Santos had a so-called interdependently stratified society which contained innumerable personal connections that cut through and across social and economic groups divided into ranks. The chapter analyzes the data on neighborhood networks, and suggests that owners and their slaves shared many attributes within neighborhoods, which is also true for the limited opportunities slaves had and for the treatment that they received.
