display_description An easy-to-access, multifaceted introduction to the world's fifth largest nation--a staggeringly diverse region, socially and geographically, that remains relatively unknown even as it becomes increasingly important on the world stage. This guide offers a chronological narrative summary of over five centuries of South America's largest country--from the days of early Portuguese exploration to President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva's 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.--From publisher description.
