The Smugglers' World (eBook)
Illicit Trade And Atlantic Communities In Eighteenth-Century Venezuela
de Jesse Cromwell
Sobre o livro
Examines a critical part of Atlantic trade for a neglected corner of the Spanish Empire. Testimonies of smugglers, buyers, and royal officials found in Venezuelan prize court records reveal a colony enmeshed in covert commerce. Jesse Cromwell paints a vivid picture of the lives of littoral peoples who normalized their subversions of imperial law.
