Brazil

Five Centuries of Change

Third Edition

James Green and Thomas E. Skidmore

  • Covers all of Brazilian history from the precolonial period to the present
  • Authored by two of the preeminent scholars on the history of Brazil, and informed by the most recent scholarship
  • Complemented by numerous photographs, maps, tables, and charts
  • Available for the first time as an eBook

New to this Edition:

  • The first two chapters on the colonial period (1500-1822) have been reorganized and expanded to offer a much more detailed chronological narrative.
  • Information about the indigenous people of Brazil during the colonial period, the Empire, and the Republic has been expanded
  • The role of women in the history of Brazil has been more emphasized throughout the volume.
  • Recent scholarship on race, slavery, and the lives of Afro-descendants has been woven into the text.
  • More information about the new social movements-feminist, Black, and LGBTQ, which emerged during the process of democratization in the 1970s and 80s has been included.
  • The economic influences on changes over time have been integrated more fully into the overall cultural, political, and social analyses of different historical periods.
  • The new edition elaborates in detail the contemporary political history of the country in order to provide the reader with a complex understanding of the changes and continuities in Brazil since the return to democracy in the 1980.
  • The images accompanying the chapters have been selected from a wide array of archives, and are mostly fresh new glimpses for illustrating the history of the country.
  • The list of Selections for Further Readings has been expanded significantly and updated to reflect the most up-to-date scholarship.
  • The volume now includes an annotated list of 100 films on Brazilian history and culture that can serve as helpful supplements for classroom instruction.
