机译帝国过剩:葡萄牙印度的腐败和decade废(1660--1706)。

【摘要】This dissertation examines corruption in the context of the Portuguese presence in India in the late seventeenth century. I argue that corruption had multiple meanings and that the numerous manifestations of corruption (administrative, economic, political, spiritual, or moral) were intertwined and, therefore, inseparable from dominant moral and religious ideas of the era. Instead of providing a purely functional perspective, I believe corruption must be studied from a social and cultural perspective in order to fully comprehend Portuguese mentalities in relation to the concept. In this time period, corruption was also linked to broader notions of the decline of the Estado da India and Portuguese colonial failures were attributed to the moral corruption of the Portuguese in India. Thus, this dissertation also considers decline and the way they it fit into Portuguese perceptions of corruption. My analysis of corruption also opens up a space in which to view the opposing agendas of particular groups within the colony and allows us to better comprehend the complex relationships between the crown, the colonial administration, and social groups in Portuguese India.

【摘要机译】本文考察了十七世纪末葡萄牙在印度的存在下的腐败情况。我认为腐败具有多种含义,腐败的多种表现形式(行政,经济,政治,精神或道德)是交织在一起的,因此与那个时代的主流道德和宗教思想密不可分。我认为,除了提供纯粹的功能性观点外,我还必须从社会和文化的角度研究腐败,以便全面理解与该概念有关的葡萄牙思想。在这段时间里,腐败也与广义的印度埃斯塔多衰落概念联系在一起,葡萄牙的殖民失败归因于印度葡萄牙人的道德腐败。因此,本文还考虑了衰落及其与葡萄牙对腐败的看法相适应的方式。我对腐败的分析还开辟了一个空间,可以在其中查看殖民地内特定群体的对立议程,并使我们能够更好地理解葡属印度,殖民地政府和社会群体之间的复杂关系。
