Brazil PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Brazil free pdf In this comprehensive introduction to Brazil describes a country defined by paradoxes: wealth surrounded by widespread poverty, a modern industrial infrastructure alongside an outmoded agricultural system, a largely white South and a Northeastern coast that is largely of African descent. Eakin chronicles Brazil's development from its origins in the 16th 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 cultural mix that is Brazil. This book is intended for travellers, anyone interested in the country, and departments of Latin American studies.
