Summary
"Ideal for high school and undergraduate students, this one-stop reference explores everything that makes up modern Brazil, including its geography, politics, pop culture, social media, daily life, and much more. Home to the 2014 FIFA World Cup and the 2016 Summer Olympic Games--and one of the world's fastest-growing economies--Brazil is quickly becoming a prominent player on the international stage. This book captures the essence of the nation and its people in a unique, topically organized volume. Narrative chapters written by expert contributors examine geography, history, government and politics, economics, society, culture, and contemporary issues, making Brazil an ideal one-stop reference for high school and undergraduate students. Coverage on religion, ethnicity, marriage and sexuality, education, literature and drama, art and architecture, music and dance, food, leisure and sport, and media provides a comprehensive look at this giant South American country--the largest nation in Latin America as well as the fifth largest nation in the world. Students will be engaged by up-to-the-minute coverage of topics such as daily life, social media, and pop culture in Brazil. Sidebars and photos highlight interesting facts and people, while a glossary, a chart of holidays, and an annotated bibliography round out the work. [This work] provides a one-stop reference for students of geography, world cultures, anthropology, social studies, current events, and Latin American studies; differs from other works in that it combines coverage of the geography, history, politics, and economy of Brazil with entries on society, culture, and contemporary issues; includes a Facts and Figures section and Holidays chart that provides readers with a quick overview of Brazil; and covers hot, new topics such as social media, Internet use, and consumer culture"--Provided by publisher
