Edge of Empire

Chapter 3 examines the significance of trans-imperial networks of trade connecting Rio de la Plata to Rio de Janeiro after the fall of Sacramento. Networks of trade between Portuguese and Spanish subjects in the South Atlantic were crucial in allowing the flow of goods, people, and information between Rio de la Plata and the metropolitan ports from 1778 to 1810, especially during times of war between Spain and Britain. This chapter argues that trans-imperial networks allowed for a significant level of cooperation between colonial subjects as well as a high degree of autonomy in relation to the Iberian metropoles.
