Eakin, Marshall C.:
Brazil: The Once and Future Country - used book

ISBN: 9780312162009

ID: 920352

As the most comprehensive introduction to Brazil available in English, "Brazil: The Once and Future Country" shows Brazil to be a land of the marvelous and the mystical, the sublime and the tragic. Marshall Eakin describes a country defined by paradoxes: immense wealth surrounded by widespread poverty, a modern industrial infrastructure alongside an outmoded agricultural system, a largely white South and a Northeastern coast that is overwhelmingly of African descent. Eakin chronicles Brazil's development from its origins in the sixteenth century, when it was created as a by-product of European imperial expansion, to the present day. He takes the reader from the hovels of Sao Paolo to the pleasure palaces of Rio de Janeiro and all places in between to show the rich cultural mix that is Brazil. "Brazil: The Once and Future Country" is a fascinating read that anyone interested in Brazil will want. It is also the perfect book for the traveler, armchair or otherwise, interested in this endlessly fascinating country. Brazil: The Once and Future Country Eakin, Marshall C., Palgrave MacMillan

Vanderbilt University historian Marshall C. Eakin provides an authoritative survey of Latin America's largest country. His broad and insightful overview reveals Brazil's many facets, including its racial melting pot (which often startles foreign visitors), economic challenges ("Brazil remains a rich country full of poor people"), and (in the book's most entertaining chapter) its carnival culture. Although Brazilians have plenty to worry about--rain forest depletion, a relatively high rate of HIV infection, and the most unequal distribution of wealth of any country in the world--Eakin suggests that Brazil is on the verge of entering "into the ranks of the great powers. 20th century,americas,brazil,history,humanities,latin america,modern (16th-21st centuries),south america,textbooks,world Humanities, Palgrave Macmillan
