Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0714837008, Paperback)"Because death belongs to all, so too should life," observes Portuguese writer José Saramago in a preface to this remarkable volume of black-and-white images. But death is easy and life is hard in Sebastião Salgado's native Brazil, where exploitation of labor and mechanization of agriculture have combined to paint a bleak future for the country's rural population. Even the faces of small children are clouded with despair in this book, which is at once a testament to human courage and a powerful argument for agrarian reform--a long-promised and long-delayed reform that has led to a bloody struggle to take possession of unused land in private hands.

"Salgado's stunning photographs of Brazil's landless rural population (estimated at nearly five million) includes an impassioned and biting preface by Saramago, three poems by Chico Buarque, and extensive captions. Ably translated. A beautiful and disturbing book"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58.
