Publisher's Comments

"Introduction to Brazil by a law professor who has been an engaged visitor since the 1960s. Themes of race, political power, violence, environment, religious diversity, and popular culture are made accessible through biographical profiles. Balances exuberance and indignation better than most recent introductions, but at a length that may exhaust the general reader. See Levine's work (item #bi 00006099#) or Eakin's (item #bi 00006100#) for more succinct introductory studies"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58.http://www.loc.gov/hlas/Drawing on personal experience, the author examines the lives of the Brazilian people, the stereotypes of Brazilian culture, and the stark contrasts between rich and poor
