Brazil : a biography by Lilia Moritz Schwarcz( Book )

28 editions published between 2015 and 2019 in English and Portuguese and held by 565 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written by two leading historians, Brazil: A Biography is a sweeping and absorbing portrait of Brazil from its origins to the twenty-first century. For many Americans, Brazil is a land of contradictions: vast natural resources and entrenched corruption; extraordinary wealth and grinding poverty; beautiful beaches and violence-torn favelas. Brazile received more than 40 percent of the African population that was stolen from the continent, and was the last country in the Western world to abolish the slave system. Brazil is larger than the contiguous United States and occupies a vivid place in the American imagination, yet it remains largely unknown. In an extraordinary journey that spans more than five hundred years, from the Amerindian civilization to the 2016 Summer Olympics, Lilia M. Schwarcz and Heloisa M. Starling's Brazil offers a rich and dramatic history of this complex country. The authors not only reconstruct the epic story of the nation but follow the shifting byways of food, art, and popular culture; the plights of minorities; and the ups and downs of economic cycles. Drawing on a range of original scholarship in history, anthropology, political science, literature, and economics, Schwarcz and Starling reveal a long process of unfinished social, political, and economic progress and struggle, a story in which the troubled legacy of the mixing of races, postcolonial political dysfunction, and inequality persist to this day. Even now, Brazil stands as one of the world's great experiements - creative, harsh, unique, and as compelling a story for outsiders as for its inhabitants. -- From dust jacket
The spectacle of the races : scientists, institutions, and the race question in Brazil, 1870-1930 by Lilia Moritz Schwarcz( Book )

7 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Lilia Moritz Schwarcz shows how Brazil's philosophers, politicians, and scientists gratefully accepted social Darwinist ideas about innate racial differences, yet feared the havoc such ideas would have wrought in Brazil. In the end, Brazil's intellectuals could not condemn the miscegenation which had so long been an essential feature of Brazilian society - and which lay at the very heart of the country's new national structures. Schwarcz illustrates how the work of these "men of science" was crucial to Brazil's modernization and to the development of its sense of national destiny."--Jacket

The Brazil reader : history, culture, politics by James Naylor Green( Book )

10 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and Undetermined and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the first encounters between the Portuguese and indigenous peoples in 1500 to the current political turmoil, the history of Brazil is much more complex and dynamic than the usual representations of it as the home of Carnival, soccer, the Amazon, and samba would suggest. This extensively revised and expanded second edition of the best-selling Brazil Reader dives deep into the past and present of a country marked by its geographical vastness and cultural, ethnic, and environmental diversity. Containing over one hundred selections--many of which appear in English for the first time and which range from sermons by Jesuit missionaries and poetry to political speeches and biographical portraits of famous public figures, intellectuals, and artists--this collection presents the lived experience of Brazilians from all social and economic classes, racial backgrounds, genders, and political perspectives over the past half millennium. Whether outlining the legacy of slavery, the roles of women in Brazilian public life, or the importance of political and social movements, The Brazil Reader provides an unparalleled look at Brazil's history, culture, and politics."--Publisher's website
