nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;Carl Degler's 1971 Pulitzer-Prize-winning study of comparative slavery in Brazil and the United States is reissued in the Wisconsin paperback edition, making it accessible for all students of American and Latin American history and sociology. nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;Until Degler's groundbreaking work, scholars were puzzled by the differing courses of slavery and race relations in the two countries. Brazil never developed a system of rigid segregation, such as appeared in the United States, and blacks in Brazil were able to gain economically and retain far more of their African culture. Rejecting the theory of Giberto Freyre and Frank Tannenbaum—that Brazilian slavery was more humane—Degler instead points to a combination of demographic, economic, and cultural factors as the real reason for the differences.

Carl Degler writes history with flair, and his spirited and readable topical history of the United States, Out of Our Past (1959), has long been a favorite among college students and general readers. In 1972 another of his works, Neither Black nor White (1971), won the Pulitzer Prize in history and the Bancroft Prize and was co-winner of the Beveridge Prize. Born in Orange, New Jersey, Degler matriculated at Upsala College and received his Ph.D. from Columbia University in 1947. He taught at Hunter College, New York University, and City College of New York before joining the faculty of Vassar College in 1952. Sixteen years later he moved on to Stanford University, where he was Margaret Byrne Professor until his retirement in 1990. In 1973 and 1974 he was Harmsworth Professor at Oxford University. He served as president of the American Historical Association from 1958 to 1986 and the Organization of American Historian
