Bringing together U.S. and Brazilian scholars, as well as Afro-Brazilian political activists, "Racial Politics in Contemporary Brazil "represents a significant advance in understanding the complexities of racial difference in contemporary Brazilian society. While previous scholarship on this subject has been largely confined to quantitative and statistical research, editor Michael Hanchard presents a qualitative perspective from a variety of disciplines, including history, sociology, political science, and cultural theory.tThe contributors to "Racial Politics in Contemporary Brazil" examine such topics as the legacy of slavery and its abolition, the historical impact of social movements, race-related violence, and the role of Afro-Brazilian activists in negotiating the cultural politics surrounding the issue of Brazilian national identity. These essays also provide comparisons of racial discrimination in the United States and Brazil, as well as an analysis of residential segregation in urban centers and its affect on the mobilization of blacks and browns. With a focus on racialized constructions of class and gender andsexuality, "Racial Politics in Contemporary Brazil" reorients the direction of Brazilian studies, providing new insights into Brazilian culture, politics, and race relations.tThis volume will be of importance to a wide cross section of scholars engaged with Brazil in particular, and Latin American studies in general. It will also appeal to those invested in the larger issues of political and social movements centered on the issue of race."Contributors."
