Although there were fewer than 10, whites in Angola in , there had been a substantial increase in white female immi- gration. Whereas mestizos had outnumbered whites in by more than three-to- one, in this ratio was reversed. Of course, black Africans still consti- tuted more than 99 percent of the population, even if their number report- edly declined from an estimated 5. In the late nineteenth century, Africans still controlled trade in the plateaus of the interior, despite Portuguese expansion.
A wall of numbers
The Ovimbundu proved highly successful intermediaries on the southern trade route that ran from the Bie Plateau to Benguela. The Ovimbundu were more competitive than the sertanejos people of the frontier, as Europeans and their usually mulatto representatives in the rural areas were called , who often had to pay tribute and fines to African chiefs if they wanted to cross their territories. By the mid s, the Ovimbundu by and large had replaced the sertanejos. Nonetheless, by the late s, Portuguese encroachments and the imposition of European rule lim- ited the political freedom of these Africans and diminished their prosperity.
Immigration changes came into full effect and competition for places that were traditionally the prerogative of Luso-Africans became ruthless, upsetting the previous politico-economical and socio-cultural schemes. The recently arrived settlers forced both old towns and small demographic nuclei to undertake new economic and cultural activities and, crushed by the colonial wave, black and mulatto natives tended to quit the towns and recede to the musseques shantytowns. Consequently, the role model provided by the jour- nalistic activity that previously invigorated the social life of the colony and by the, even if troubled, diffusion of local and small periodical publications gradually lost its fundamental role.
Once it had become clear that the local political debate that had stimulated so many young Angolenses was out- moded, and that internal and export trade, demographic development, and the new pace assumed by society gave life to concerns that could have been hardly satisfied by a periodical press, the local colonial bourgeoisie had to let go of the control of its environment.
It was no longer possible to liven up the political life of towns like Luanda and Benguela with such small resources. The suspension endured several months and the Cortes of Portugal were summoned to discuss the matter. The gilded age of the Creole communities was definitely over. Despite this economic decline, India featured as a romantic colossus in the Portuguese popular imagination. The empire of the east still contained fifty-odd beachheads, fortresses, trading factories and islands stretching from the Zambesi to the Pacific, including Ormuz, Diu, Damao, Goa, Cochim, Malaca, East Timor, and Macau Birmingham The latter hypothesis suggests the need to maintain a strict contact with slave-buying countries.
That produces a considerable loss, since our traders, having to pay heavy cus- toms duties, cannot compete in any way with foreign traders. This expedition, however, did not have official sup- port from Lisbon and, more importantly, it crossed areas not claimed by Portugal. They operated in the Kimbundu-speaking world and were also consciously and openly cannibals. Works Cited Allain, Jean-Claude.

Lisbon: Escher, He is currently working on a post-doc at the Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro, researching the connection between abolitionism and republicanism in Brazil, Angola and Portugal. Coates Abstract: Forced colonization of Angola using European convicts from to was a bold experiment by the Lisbon authorities, motivated by an increasing population of criminals and the international scramble for colonies in Africa. It held the promise of solving both these dilemmas while providing the labor needed for development. Introduction This article stands at the crossroads of two large avenues of historical writing on the nineteenth century: penal reform and New Imperialism.
To date, this has been a lonely and rather obscure corner in the literature, especially on the Portuguese in Africa. This article will outline how largely white European forced labor provided by convicts became commonplace in the Angolan colony by the end of the nineteenth and first thirty years of the twentieth centuries.

The process of exiling convict labor to Angola sheds light on sev- eral aspects of Portuguese society, penal reform in Portugal, and the overall colonization efforts of the Portuguese in Africa, especially Angola. Degredados also formed links between and among colonies. Aspects of crime, criminals, and criminality in Portugal are really only now being explored by social scientists. The very important connections they formed have not yet received the attention they merit.
This is equally true for both the early modern and modern periods. After concluding at , I began to question what happened to the use of degredo penal exile after that date.

Part of that answer was the use of internal exile within Portugal to the little town of Castro Marim see below. This imperial prison housed convicts mostly from Portugal, from all the other colonies except Mozambique, which had its own prison , as well as foreign criminals sentenced by Portuguese courts. The creation of the Deposito was the last and one of the most creative phases of the Portuguese use of exile as punishment. This article appears at the end of the intermediate stage, after my research in Lisbon was completed.
