Editorial Reviews

Review

This work carefully analyses the social and cultural impact of the railway on Brazil, moving beyond the familiar tropes of football and carnival. The book is an innovative and wide-ranging study of the many ways in which the railway has worked its way into and helped form the Brazilian imagination. It provides new and exciting perspectives both on Brazilian culture and on the changing role of railways in moulding modernity in different cultures. --Dr. Robert Howes, Research Associate in the Department of Spanish, Portuguese and Latin American Studies, King s College, London

Melding cultural history with an incisive analysis of how today's public engages with railway museums and tourist lines, Martin Cooper takes the study of Brazil's iron roads in new directions. This book is essential reading for anyone interested in how South Americans culturally appropriated a key technology of European imperialism. --Prof. Colin Divall, Head of the Institute of Railway Studies & Transport History, run jointly by the University of York and the National Railway Museum, York
