5.0 out of 5 stars The best for genuine insights, 18 July 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Brazilians (Paperback)
I found this book illuminating. It's written by a foreigner who really knows and loves Brazil; whilst pulling no punches on it's huge problems.

Each chapter handles a different topic - from religion and television (the cult of the telenovela) to the haves and have nots, violence and Lula as a political phenomenon (shame it's a little out of date on this). There are also chapters on the different ethnic groups.

Information is peppered with personal experience and is never trivial, narcissistic or superficial (unlike the Malathronas book).
