Professor Schwartz specializes in the history of colonial Latin America, especially Brazil and on the history of Early Modern expansion. Among his books are Sovereignty and Society in Colonial Brazil; Early Latin America; Sugar Plantations in the Formation of Brazilian Society; Slaves, Peasants, and Rebels; Cambridge History Of Native Peoples Of The Americas; and South America. He is presently working on several projects: a history of independence of Portugal and the crisis of the Iberian Atlantic, 1620-1670; and a social history of Caribbean hurricanes. We talk with him about his newest, groundbreaking book, All Can Be Saved: Religious Tolerance and Salvation in the Iberian Atlantic World.
