Beautifully written and stylistically brilliant, Christopher Dunn's lucid analysis of the Brazilian counterculture, which deserves as much attention as the North American one, lays out a new field of study. Conveying multiple points of view--the radicals and counterculturalists as seen even in the eyes of the police--this book is a page-turner.--Robert Stam, New York University
Contracultura will become the foundational work in English on Brazil's countercultural movement during the long 1960s. Revealing with tremendous insight and nuance the cross-currents of cultural protest, left-wing politics, state authoritarianism, and market forces, Christopher Dunn not only highlights the diversity of countercultural movements that emerged concurrently across Latin America during this period but also rightfully affirms the definitive place of Brazil's contracultura within that landscape.--Eric Zolov, Stony Brook University
