Description: ""Children of Fate" is truly original, with an extraordinary level of insight and analysis. Nara B. Milanich shows how class identity was manipulated by the liberal state in a way that maintained hierarchies, and she illustrates her arguments with rich examples gleaned from extensive archival research. A brilliant, first-rate book."--Elizabeth Kuznesof, author of "Household Economy and Urban Development: Sao Paulo, 1765 to 1836"
