Editorial Reviews

Review

“A stellar collection of texts on Brazilian history and contemporary life. No ordinary reader, this volume goes below the surface to introduce an American audience to Brazil’s complexities and diversity.” - Foreign Affairs


“Duke University Press has just brought out . . . the closest thing to a voyage around ‘the great green elbow’ that one of its novelists called his rich and varied country. The book shimmers with every type of essay, historiography, and literary tidbit.” - Rain City Review


“Whether ingested in short sips or long draughts, The Brazil Reader has an accumulative weight, breadth, and durability. . . . [I]t’s a book that offers an intelligent and up-to-date survey of a vital and vibrant country. It’s hard to imagine how we were able to get along without it.” - Bondo Wyszpolski, Brazzil


“A worthy successor to the pioneering Peru Reader, this volume provides a comprehensive guide to Brazil’s history and culture from the Portuguese colonial past to the postmodern present. Defty crossing disciplines and integrating elite and popular realms, The Brazil Reader is certain to please both the serious student and the general reader.”—Gil Joseph, Yale University


The Brazil Reader is simply indispensable. . . .” - Julio César Pino, Hispanic American Historical Review


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


The Reader cannot fail to impress. . . . The specialist, the activist, the artist and the anonymous all find a space in The Brazil Reader, creating what the editors describe as a ‘balance of voices.’ In summary, for the well-heeled scholar or the curious undergraduate The Brazil Reader will present possibilities, challenges and thought-provoking reading.” - Jane-Marie Collins, Bulletin of Hispanic Studies
