Book Description

25 Jan 2008
Uma prova definitiva da relação de proximidade desenvolvida entre a Grã-Bretanha e o Brazil ao longo de séculos é a existência nas Ilhas Britânicas de um rico patrimônio arquivístico sobre o Brasil. Brasil nos Arquivos Britânicos e Irlandeses foi o primeiro guia dedicado a esse magnífico legado, agora publicado em língua portuguêsa em versão revista e ampliada. O guia, que lista e descreve 79 coleções de manuscritos relativos ao Brasil existentes em arquivos, bibliotecas e museus britâncos e irlandeses, oferece importantes subsídios para a história do Brasil do século XVI ao XX. Embora esse material seja particularmente importante para a compreensão das relações Grã-Bretanha-Brasil no século XIX e início do XX, outros temas e períodos históricos são também contemplados. Os historiadores reconhecerão em Brasil nos Arquivos Britânicos e Irlandeses valioso instrumento de identificação desse rico acervo mantido por repositórios arquivísticos locais, nacionais e especializados, espalhados pelas ilhas britânicas.

More About the Author

Oliver Marshall first went to Brazil in 1982, arriving by train from Bolivia. After nine months in the Andes getting increasingly fed up of being so clearly identifiable as a foreigner, it was a huge relief to be able to walk along a Brazilian street and not to be noticed as a gringo. Since then, Oliver has returned, whenever possible, to Brazil for study, work and, above all, pleasure. He is co-author of The Rough Guide to Brazil (for which he has particular responsibility for the chapters on Rio de Janeiro, Minas Gerais & Espírito Santo, São Paulo and the South) and of The Rough Guide to Rio de Janeiro. He has contributed travel articles on Brazil and other parts of the world to British, Austrian and Canadian newspapers and magazines.

Oliver is also the author or editor of history-related books including English, Irish and Irish-American Pioneer Settlers in Nineteenth-Century Brazil (Oxford, 2005) and The South American Letters of Stefan and Lotte Zweig: New York, Argentina and Brazil 1940-42 (New York and London, 2010). He is now working on an anthology of British, Irish and North American travel writings on Brazil and a history of the international trade in sea turtles.

Oliver Marshall is currently a visiting research fellow at King's College London's Brazil Institute.
