From the Publisher"… this long-overdue book will be of interest to both academic and public libraries."
Mark L. Grover, Library Journal
"… this probing view of 500 years in one of South America's richest and most populous countries hits the highlights."
Joe Collins, Booklist
"A fine introduction to Brazilian history."
Kenneth Maxwell, Foreign Affairs
"… this highly reliable history will be as valuable as a reference work as it will be for couse adoption."
"It's no mean feat to tell the unruly story of a country as large, diverse and divided as Brazil in one volume of narrative history. But Fausto succeeds admirably in presenting facts, figures, events and influences in an orderly, palatable fashion. … Fausto has written a nuts-and-bolts account that will serve general readers as a navigable port of entry into the history and life of one of the world's most culturally rich nations."
"The most distinguished historian of Brazil of his generation, Boris Fausto has chosen a broad-brush historical narrative approach, punctuated by a discussion of key controversies in the historiography. … A Concise History offers the non-expert reader a broad panorama of Brazilian history. The expert will appreciate efforts to capture issues and controversies in the historiography and to present them in a digestible fashion."
