A Alfândega do Rio de Janeiro: da União Ibérica ao fim da Guerra da Restauração (ca.1580-ca.1668)

The analysis of business relations in Rio de Janeiro having the background of the Customs is the purpose of this work. During the Iberian Union, due to the strategic geographical position and the capacity to articulate with other markets, the captaincy of Rio de Janeiro has emerged as a promising route to be integrated in the Atlantic circuit and won a prominent role in the Iberian overseas. Equally important was the fact that the colonial system begins to be rooted during the period, (beginning seventeenth century) with the introduction of commercial exclusive and the increase of the slave trade. Responsible for tax collection, the organization of trade and anti-smuggling surveillance, Customs should be seen as an essential institution for the economic development of the region and also the scene of conflicts and typical waywardness dynamics that society.
