The Brazil Reader
History, Culture, Politics299Skickas inom 7-10 vardagar.
Fri frakt inom Sverige för privatpersoner.From the first encounters between the Portuguese and indigenous peoples in 1500 to the current political turmoil, the history of Brazil is much more complex and dynamic than the usual representations of it as the home of Carnival, soccer, the Amazon, and samba would suggest. This extensively revised and expanded second edition of the best-selling Brazil Reader dives deep into the past and present of a country marked by its geographical vastness and cultural, ethnic, and environmental diversity. Containing over one hundred selections-many of which appear in English for the first time and which range from sermons by Jesuit missionaries and poetry to political speeches and biographical portraits of famous public figures, intellectuals, and artists-this collection presents the lived experience of Brazilians from all social and economic classes, racial backgrounds, genders, and political perspectives over the past half millennium. Whether outlining the legacy of slavery, the roles of women in Brazilian public life, or the importance of political and social movements, The Brazil Reader provides an unparalleled look at Brazil's history, culture, and politics.

"The editors' language and writing style is accessible to most readers and each section and chapter is expertly explained and outlined. . . . It should become a must-read volume for undergraduate and graduate students of Brazil, as well as the general public who are also interested in Brazil." -- Alan P. Marcus * Journal of Latin American Geography * "Now in its second edition, The Brazil Reader is much more than just an update; it is essentially a different volume. . . . This edition features a Brazilian historiographical influence that prioritizes documents written by Brazilian historical figures over those by foreign observers. This edition also has added attention to earlier historical periods that are imperative to understanding modern Brazil. More focus is given to recent views on race, gender, and culture. A suggestion to librarians: do not deselect the first edition. The differences between the two volumes merit keeping both. Essential. All levels." -- M. L. Grover * Choice *
