📙 Brazil: A Global Studies Handbook (Global Studies: Latin America & the Caribbean) by Todd L. Edwards — pdf free


Brazil: A Global Studies Handbook provides an easy-to-access, multifaceted introduction to the worldÕs fifth largest nation—a staggeringly diverse region, socially and geographically, that remains relatively unknown even as it becomes increasingly important on the world stage.

Brazil offers an expert chronological narrative summary of over five centuries of South AmericaÕs largest country—from the days of early Portuguese exploration to President Luiz Inácio Lula da SilvaÕs reelection. In addition, it provides a richly informative section of alphabetically organized entries covering important Brazilian people, places, and events. For readers both new to Brazil or researching specific aspects of its unique history, complex politics, heavyweight economy, and vibrant culture, this is the volume with which to begin.
