This is a detailed study of British influence in Brazil as a theme within the larger story of modernization. The British were involved at key points in the initial stages of modernization. Their hold upon the import-export ecomy tended to slow down industrialization, and there were other areas in which their presence acted as a brake upon Brazilian modernization. But the British also fostered change. British railways provided primary stimulus to the growth of coffee exports, and since the British did t mopolize coffee production, a large proportion of the profits remained in Brazilian hands for other uses. Furthermore, the burgeoning coffee ecomy shattered traditional ecomic, social and political relationships, opening up the way for other areas of growth. The British role was t confined to ecomic development. They also contributed to the growth of 'a modern world-view'. Spencerianism and the idea of progress, for instance, were t exotic and meaningless imports, but an integral part of the transformation Brazil was experiencing.
