Brazil in brief for the beginner 16. Juli 2014
Von Marco Buendia - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This book is largely a "picture book"; all color, or almost all of them, including some reproductions of historical portraits, etc. Reproduction is good, though not extraordinary.

However, the photos are great. In the sense that you might not have seen a lot of this stuff before. Nature, the various cities (not just the usual Rio De J, S.P. and a colonial remnant or two), and cultural life are the main divisions. All of this is what you usually see, conceptually, but the selection is a bit more innovative than I usually see and the aesthetic quality is pretty high. Especially the photos of landscapes will maybe clue you in to certain parts of Brazil you might not have been aware of. Mato Grosso, for example, was a place I knew about, but scarcely had an image of. Brazil is as projected upon as Black America, but the author and editors of this book actually thought about the actual place and selected accordingly.

As I say, it's mostly as picture book, but the brief texts go well beyond mere captions and should serve as a reasonable introduction to the country. In particular, the historical intro is fairly well conceived and executed, concise as it is.

Criticisms are minor; some of the text passages are in all-caps. Why people fool around this way is beyond me, but it's been common ever since word-processing came in. Otherwise: no maps, brief index, photo credits, but not bibliography or footnotes. None of this really detracts from the plain virtues of the book, hence, five stars.

A final note which I personally don't consider necessary, but which might be useful to some purchasers:

(Almost) nothing lascivious in this book. A virtue or a drawback, I leave it up to the readers. It's a book about Brazil, and it was published in Italy. So you can't rely upon current Anglo-American "political correctness" (I hate to use this buggy term, but it's "appropriate" (sorry) here) to have cleaned things up for Aunt Matilda or her Catherine McKinnon-reading grand-niece.
a love affair with Brazil 8. September 2014
Von Steve - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
On the positive side, the nature photography in the first half of the book is beautiful. On the negative side, it's ironic that the famous Christ the Redeemer statue is featured several times in the book, considering that human overpopulation encouraged by primitive doctrines promoted by the Catholic Church is steadily destroying the very natural beauty that the author celebrates in the book.
