Culture is Our Weapon: AfroReggae in the Favelas of Rio
"Brazil is a conundrum; even as its culture enjoys an ever higher profile in the West, an undeclared, vicious and often ignored drug war is being fought on the streets of its cities' favelas (shantytowns). Culture is Our Weapon: AfroReggae in the Favelas of Rio is a unique and remarkable book. It tells the story of this war through the eyes of both the protagonists and those it affects, revealing the terrifying complexities of life on the frontline of one of the most damaging civil conflicts in Latin America."--BOOK JACKET.
