Brazil: The Culture

by Carolyn Black, Malika Hollander
 

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
As a companion to Brazil the People and Brazil the Land, clear, colorful photographs and maps illustrate this slim book about Brazil's culture, part of the "Lands, Peoples and Cultures Series." Content includes Brazilian holidays (including those from both the religious and secular traditions); an explanation of the various religious practices of the Brazilian people and how religious affects the Brazilian culture; music and dance; folk and fine arts; architecture; language and literature. Sufficient history is included to make clear the effects on the culture of the blending of Roman Catholicism with indigenous religion and culture. Back matter includes a glossary and index. Unfortunately, missing is a pronunciation key for the Portuguese words that dot the text, particularly notable in a chart of English and Portuguese words. This volume, along with its two companions, serves as a brief but fascinating introduction to the culture of Brazil, probably sufficient for some elementary school and most middle school research projects. 2003, Crabtree Publishing Company,
