Read the introduction of The Brazil Reader,
by Green, Langland, and Schwarcz (p.20).
Write a 300-word reflection on the paragraph below from page 20:
“Within this chronological approach, six interrelated and underlying themes appear throughout the volume:
(1) the structure of the colonial, imperial, and republican economies in relationship to local production and
international demands for goods produced in Brazil;
(2) the complex social hierarchies that developed in a society based on extracting labor from the
indigenous population, enslaved Africans, free people of color, and immigrants;
(3) the legacy of slavery, the ideologies that have justified it, and their relationship to notions of race, equality, and democracy in Brazil;
(4) the roles that women of all social classes have played in Brazilian public life and the importance of ideas about masculinity and femininity that undergird relationships of power;
(5) the dynamic between political and social movements, popular rebellions, uprisings, revolts, and mobilizations, on the one hand, and social change, on the other; and
(6) the multifaceted intellectual production that reveals much about the nature of Brazil, its people, and their
cultures, from poetry and short stories to various forms of nonfiction.
These themes and their varied facets emerge in the documents, essays, portraits, and images in all of the selections that follow.”
