 "'White Slavery' As Metaphor Anatomy of a Moral Panic," by Mary Ann Irwin

 Amazon.com: Neither Black Nor White : Slavery and Race Relations in Brazil and the United States: Books: Carl Degler   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
Carl Degler's 1971 Pulitzer-Prize-winning study of comparative slavery in Brazil and the United States is reissued in the Wisconsin paperback edition, making it accessible for all students of American and Latin American history and sociology.
Rejecting the theory of Giberto Freyre and Frank Tannenbaum—that Brazilian slavery was more humane—Degler instead points to a combination of demographic, economic, and cultural factors as the real reason for the differences.
By comparing and contrasting the two separate, though similar contries, Degler not only provides a world class history of the institution of slavery in both countries, but forces the reader to examine their own prejudices in the matter.
