Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0813060672, Hardcover)

“Highly recommended for anyone seeking to understand Brazil’s recent dynamism.”—Timothy J. Power, coeditor of Corruption and Democracy in Brazil
 
“Superb. No other recent volume on Brazil is as deep, rich, and multifaceted.”—Michael Shifter, president, Inter-American Dialogue
 
“Treats the politics, economy, and society of Brazil, showing how those subjects are affected by forces elsewhere in the world and how Brazil in turn impacts other countries. All serious students of contemporary Brazil should read this book.”—Joseph L. Love, author of The Revolt of the Whip
 

For decades, scholars and journalists have hailed the enormous potential of Brazil, which has been one of the world’s largest economies for the last twenty years. But its promise has too often been curtailed by dictatorship, racism, poverty, and violence.
           
Offering an interdisciplinary approach to the critical issues facing Brazil, the contributors to this volume analyze the democratization of the country’s media, its nuclear capabilities, changing crime rates, the spread of Pentecostalism and indigenous religions, the development of popular culture, the growth of Brazilian agribusiness, and the implementation of sustainable economic development, especially in the Amazon.
           
The only member of the large, newly industrialized, fast-growing BRICS economies (along with Russia, China, India, and South Africa) in the Western hemisphere, Brazil plays a unique role regionally and throughout the world. Emergent Brazil is a comprehensive and timely collection of essays that explore the country’s major domestic concerns and the impact of its trends, institutions, culture, and religion across the globe.
