Example text

There does not appear to have been significant ongoing trade in latex or rubber objects between the Mexica and the Incas or other groups on the South American continent, so it is likely that the inhabitants of the Amazon river basin learned independently of Central American peoples how to tap what Europeans later dubbed rubber trees, including Hevea brasiliensis, or simply hevea. Tupi‐speaking Indians in what is now Brazil called the tree cahuchu, literally “wood that weeps,” variants of which became the word for “rubber” in several European languages: caucho in Spanish, caoutchouc in French, and Kautschuk in German.

On the other, fundamental connections were hidden by the social and cultural norms of the time, norms that made careful and elaborate distinctions among races—especially between people of color and whites—between women and men, and between middle‐class managers and working‐class laborers. European empires at home and abroad were above all hierarchical, much as plantations were. European planters saw themselves as undertaking what British imperial writer Rudyard Kipling called “The White Man’s Burden” to control and “c­ivilize” people of color, women, and workers.

Race, Migration, and Labor Americans of European descent investing and working in European colonies) could undertake what the French called the “civilizing mission [mission civilisatrice]” by making the colonized more efficient and thus more productive. This chapter explores issues of race and imperialism in colonizers’ management of people and land from the late nineteenth century through the first half of the twentieth. For background, it begins with an account of the “wild” rubber “discovered” and exploited in the Amazon and the Congo, especially once nineteenth‐century inventors fashioned various useful (and marketable) products out of rubber.
