Sueann Caulfield in her recently published book In Defense of Honor: Sexual Morality, Modernity .

Sueann Caulfield in her recently published book In Defense of Honor: Sexual Morality, Modernity, and Nation in ury Brazil is concerned with the importance given for different classes to women's chastity as the basis of the family honor and the notions of an "honorable" marriage, in Brazil between post World War I period and 1940s.

With a close examination of legal theory on sexual offenses and case law in Rio de Janeiro from the end of World War I to the early years of the Estado Novo dictatorship, Caulfield reveals how everyday interpretations of honor influenced official attitudes and even the law itself as Brazil attempted to modernize.

Sueann Caulfield's engaging study of sexual honor in ury Rio de Janeiro exemplifies the analytical breadth and sophistication that Scott advocated. Caulfield convincingly argues that we must treat gendered notions of honor and decency as more than merely a handy window onto social, cultural, and political developments from the late First Republic (1889-1930) into the Estado Novo. 1937-1945); such notions were in fact integral to the vast changes that Brazilian society underwent in the period. To make this overall case, the author examines how ideas of sexual honor.

In this book Sueann Caulfield explores the changing meanings of honor in early-twentieth-century Brazil, a period that saw an extraordinary proliferation of public debates that linked morality, modernity, honor, and national progress. With a close examination of legal theory on sexual offenses and case law in Rio de Janeiro from the end of World War I to the early years of the Estado Novo dictatorship, Caulfield reveals how everyday interpretations of honor influenced official attitudes and even the law itself as Brazil attempted to modernize. While some Brazilian elites used the issue of sexual purity to boast of their country’s moral superiority, others claimed that the veneration of such concepts as virginity actually frustrated efforts at modernization. Moreover, although individuals of all social classes invoked values they considered “traditional,” such as the confinement of women’s sexuality within marriage, these values were at odds with social practices—such as premarital sex, cohabitation, divorce, and female-headed households—that had been common throughout Brazil’s history. The persistence of these practices, together with post-World War I changes in both official and popular moral ideals, presented formidable obstacles to the Estado Novo’s renewed drive to define and enforce public morality and private family values in the late 1930s. With sophisticated theoretical underpinnings, In Defense of Honor is written in a clear and lively manner, making it accessible to students and scholars in a variety of disciplines, including Brazilian and Latin American studies, gender studies, and legal history.
