MANAOS, THE GROWTH OF A CITY IN THE AMAZON VALLEY
Núm. páginas: 120
This thesis purposes to analyse the growth of Manaos within the frame work of the geographic and economic background of the Amazonia, to point out its social and ecological condition, and to interpret them in relation to the development of the city. The author tried to show in this thesis the multi-fold aspects of the city through the different of its history – as a small village settled around the fort of São Jose do Rio Negro, as a decadent town in the beginning of the eighteenth century, as a boom city in the close of the nineteenth century.
