Summary: As one of the most recognized experts on Brazil, Thomas E. Skidmore has compiled a much-needed and brief yet complete study of the country's rich ethnic, political, economic, industrial and social history. Written for both general readers and students of Latin American culture and history, Brazil examines the blessings of the country's ethnic diversity, wealth of natural resources, and rapid economic and industrial development, as well as the problems,
such as its long history of political instability and military rule, and the horrendous inflection and international debt which have plagued the nation as it has emerged as a major Third World power. The book provides a detailed look not only at Brazil's past and its national identity, but its visions for its future.
  • Written by one of the leading scholars on Brazilian history
  • Examines the factors which have led the Brazil's success as a world power as well as its greatest problems
  • Explores Brazil's collective past and its population's national identity and visions for the future
