Review:

. . . offers a wide-ranging and inclusive multidisciplinary analysis of Brazil's complex social and political identity. (Perspectives on Politics)

This collection brings together a wide array of (mostly) Brazilian authors, from various disciplines, who focus on different aspects and moments of Brazilian society, polity, culture and literature....The authors make clear at the outset that their intent was to provide a 'comprehensive and multifaceted picture', and to privilege 'diversity' both in terms of authorship as well as topic coverage, an aim that is broadly acheived. (Latin American Studies)

Like most edited collections, the fourteen essays in this volume are of varying quality and depth, although most of them are very fine contributions. especially to our understanding of intellectuals and ideas in Brazil in the twentieth century. The diverse disciplines of contributors also reflects the breadth and quality of scholars working on Brazil today in Brazilian academia. (Luso-Brazilian Review 2010-09-01)
