Review: Death Without Weeping: The Violence of Everyday Life in Brazil

User Review  - لميا مغنية - Goodreads

beautifully written book, but I felt it had questionable ethics in terms of the ethnography conducted and the research question asked. It felt like voyeurism at one point and I was not comfortable reading it. Read full review
