The book The Abolitionism, authored by Joaquim Nabuco, was completed in 1883, during the period when several laws were in effect to restrict slavery within the national territory. However, it was still five years before the total abolition of slavery. It is an integral part of the abolitionist campaign, of which Nabuco was perhaps the foremost white advocate for decades. The book holds immeasurable value in understanding the lengthy historical, economic, and political process that eventually led to the end of slavery, as well as the resistance and vested interests at play in the second half of the 19th century.
