Product description

Review

"In this penetrating study of Indianism in colonial and nineteenth-century Brazilian literature, David Treece offers a sopisticated and textured analysis of the sociopolitical milieux that engendered this genre...Treece's book suceeds in demonstrating how Indianism, more than a romantic throwback, was characterized by a broad array of ideological perspectives and political agendas that often reflected its interlocutors' social backgrounds and relationships to the imperial state...Treece's meticulously researched book offers a historically grounded analysis that is a much welcome addition to the slim but growing body of literature on indigenous peoples in Brazil."-Luso-Brazilian Review

"The research is thorough, the arguments sophisticated, and the book rewarding for the specialist."-Choice

"[A] valuable and enjoyable book that taps a rich vein in the history of Brazilian identity."-Latin American Studies
