Realities of Images: Imperial Brazil and the Great Drought by Gerald Michael Michael Greenfield

Greenfield, who is not identified, analyzes the vast gulf between the discursive reality of imperial elites and the empirical reality experiences by the displaced sertanejos as they struggled to survive the ravages of the Great Drought in the northeastern provinces of Brazil during 1877.
