History of Brazil, 1500-2000: Politics, Economy, Society, Diplomacy
/*MB411, 0-582-25771-9 , Smith, Dr. Joseph, A History of Brazil */ This is an up-to-date and definitive history of Brazil's unique and dramatic past From its discovery by the Portuguese explorer Cabral in 1500, to the end of the millennium in 2000. This is a particularly important study since Brazil has been transformed from precarious colonial outpost to a giant of South America, and is one of the largest and most populated nations of the modern world. A clearly structured and well-informed synthesis, A History of Brazil is an account that tells the story of 500 years of Brazilian history from discovery to the present. Divided chronologically into five main historical epochs- Colonial Brazil, Empire, the First Republic, the Estado Novo and events since1964 - the book explores the politics, economy, society, and diplomacy during each phase. The emphasis on diplomacy is particularly original and adds an unusual dimension to the book. For anyone interested in South American or Brazilian history.
