The history of Brazil by Robert M Levine( Book )

22 editions published between 1999 and 2003 in English and held by 1,175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Relatively bland historical introduction for general readers emphasizes economic development, social inequality, and apparent inability of reforms to address inequality. Begins in 1500, but more than half of volume is devoted to post-1930 Brazil and contemporary issues. Getúlio Vargas is central both as a reformist turning point in politics and as a representative enigma. Useful, but much less piquant and heartfelt than author's Brazilian legacies (item #bi 00006099#)"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58
The Brazil reader : history, culture, politics( Book )

15 editions published between 1999 and 2002 in English and held by 1,053 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Indispensable introduction to Brazil for students and general readers includes short scholarly articles, interviews, documents, photographs, and many autobiographical pieces. Begins with precontact indigenous peoples, but about half deals with Brazil since 1945. Topics include indigenous peoples, slavery, Vargas and labor, political protest, women, race relations, marginal groups, and popular culture. Overarching themes are mobility and repression"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58

9 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 636 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Biographical essay on Getúlio Vargas, dictator and elected president 1930-45 and 1951-54, focuses on inconsistencies in his claim to be a social reformer. Includes a creative collection of documents and photographs showing Vargas' many images. Extremely useful for students"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58
Cuban Miami by Robert M Levine( Book )

4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 575 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Cuban Miami is the first analytical, photographic record of Cuban migration to the city. Robert M. Levine and Moises Asis have interviewed members of every sector of the Cuban exile community, from the first pioneers to the mass waves in the early 1960s to those who arrived by raft during the late 1990s. In their investigation of Cuban-U.S. history, the authors touch upon all aspects of Cuban influence: politics, cuisine, music, religion, and everyday life. The authors also remind us that, while Cuban Americans are the most prosperous immigrant group in the United States today, this success has come at a price - living in exile can exact a personal and political toll."--Jacket
Brazilian legacies by Robert M Levine( Book )

11 editions published between 1996 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 539 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Engaging, highly personal introduction to contemporary Brazilian society by a leading US historian adopts a bottom-up perspective, emphasizing frustrations of popular aspirations to dignity and justice. Essays on various topics - race, mobility, marginal 'outsiders' (includes women), informal political culture and corruption, coping strategies of the poor, and popular culture. Draws on a rich array of scholarly perspectives, personal anecdotes, and newspaper clippings"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58

Two historians retrace Carolina's life, especially in the years following the short-lived success of Quarto de despejo (Child of the dark), and reflect on what her life story reveals about race in Brazil. Includes extensive interviews with Carolina's children"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58

Secret missions to Cuba : Fidel Castro, Bernardo Benes, and Cuban Miami by Robert M Levine( Book )

7 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 435 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This story has never been told. It starts in pre-1959 Miami and ends with the 2000 Gore/Bush presidential election. A story of intrigue carried out in Havana and Washington, as well as in Panama, Nassau, Kingston, Cuernavaca, Mexico City, New York, and Atlanta, Secret Missions to Cuba is an expose of the intimidating influence that militant Cuban exiles have had, and its enormous consequences for Cuban Americans."--Jacket
Tropical diaspora : the Jewish experience in Cuba by Robert M Levine( Book )

10 editions published between 1993 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 433 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For the generations of Jews who immigrated to Cuba after 1900, the experience was bittersweet. Cuba welcomed immigrants long after the United States shut its doors to them in 1924, particularly refugees from Nazism. Yet the story of Cuban Jewry also includes the tragic 1939 drama of the SS St. Louis, turned away from Havana and the United States with its cargo of German-Jewish refugees still aboard, a propaganda coup for Germany. Although many Jews prospered economically on the island, they always remained outsiders, denied access to political influence and to high society. Unlike Jewish communities elsewhere, Jews in Cuba played virtually no cultural or intellectual role. Ironically, those who emigrated to the United States as politically (and economically) desirable refugees after the 1959 revolution were the same Jews, or the children of the same Jews, who had been deemed undesirable and denied U.S. entry in the 1920s. Robert Levine interviewed nearly a hundred Cuban-Jewish immigrants in the course of writing this book, and his use of their words lends the work an especially engaging, lively quality and makes it a vivid reflection of how the immigrants thought and felt and lived. The pages contain more than seventy-five rare photographs of the island and of the Jewish community from its origins to its near-moribund state today. Levine also compares the experience of Cuba's Jews with that of other immigrant groups, as well as that of Holocaust survivors in other Caribbean and Central American countries. The book's broad scope thus gives it appeal not only for students of Latin American Jewish issues but for all those interested in the relationship between majority and minority societies in the Americas
Bitita's diary : the childhood memoirs of Carolina Maria de Jesus by Carolina Maria de Jesus( Book )

6 editions published between 1998 and 2015 in English and held by 409 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Carolina (1915-77), whose childhood nickname was Bitita, evokes the hardships of her early life in 1920s-30s rural Minas Gerais. Volume was written in 1970s and posthumously published, first in French in 1982 and finally in Portuguese in 1986. This very careful translation aims to retain inconsistencies and nonstandard grammar of the original. Valuable introduction and afterword by Levine"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58
The unedited diaries of Carolina Maria de Jesus by Carolina Maria de Jesus( Book )

4 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 407 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Important volume attempts to lay to rest doubts about authorship of Carolina's best-selling Quarto de despejo, translated as Child of the dark. Diary entries cover years 1958-66. Translations aim to reproduce tone and register of the original, without embellishment or correction, and are followed by a fascinating discussion of Carolina's significance"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58

11 editions published in 1978 in English and Undetermined and held by 380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Brazilian photographs of Genevieve Naylor, 1940-1942 by Robert M Levine( Book )

4 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Often balking at her mundane assignments, an independent-minded Naylor produced something far different and far more rich - a stunning collection of over a thousand images that document a rarely seen period in Brazilian history. Accompanied by analysis from Robert M. Levine, this selection of Naylor's photographs offers a unique view of everyday life during one of modern Brazil's least-examined decades
