by Robert M. Levine & John J.Crocitti (eds)

An anthology which brings a fresh perspective to the challenge of understanding Brazil. Uniquely incorporates the traditional disciplines of history, politics, and economics with the newer approaches to understanding social life - gender, the history of the family and collective memory. Introductory essays by the editor, eminent Brazilianist Robert Levine, frame each section and provide an illuminating context for the entries.

An unparalleled introduction to Brazil, through extracts of essays, history, poetry, literature and contemporary comment.

'What gives The Brazil Reader its special cachet is freshness, sensitivity , and empathy in its diversity of perspectives on Brazil, from the top down, from the bottom up , and from somewhere in the middle.'
Stanley J. Stein , Princeton University
