Nesta obra, Frederico Pernambucano de Mello mergulha em um possível universo desconhecido de sua cultura material, promovendo a leitura do requinte e dos significados presentes nas peças de uso dos cangaceiros, a exemplo do signo-de-salomão, da cruz-de-malta, da flor-de-lis, do oito contínuo deitado, das gregas, de variações sublimadas da flora local, e das combinações possíveis de que se valia o cangaceiro na construção de um traje que atendia à vaidade ornamental de seu brado guerreiro e a anseios de proteção mística. 'Estrela de Couro - A Estética do Cangaço' pretende ser um ensaio interdisciplinar e ao mesmo tempo um livro de arte com mais de 300 fotos históricas.

This essential book unravels the link between regional cultures, adaptive reuse of existing buildings and sustainability. It concentrates on the social dimensions relating to Brazilian architect Lina Bo Bardi’s late adaptive reuse projects and works from the 1960s to the early 1990s, interpreting her themes, technical sources and design strategies of the creation of luxury as sustainability.The edited book charts how Lina Bo Bardi “invented” her own version of sustainability, introduced this concept through her landscape and adaptive reuse designs and through ideas about cross-cultures in Brazil. The book offers a critical reflection, exploration and demonstration of the importance of adaptive reuse in the landscape and related themes for researchers and provides researchers and students new material on sustainability for further study. In the context of the plurality of revisions of Lina Bo Bardi’s work, this book brings about a refreshed interpretation of her integrative approach to adaptive reuse of buildings and landscapes as a significant contribution to the sustainability debate. It offers new insights into the construction of discourses about sustainability from the perspective of one of the key architects in the period to operate in the interface between modernity and tradition. – Dr Fabiano Lemes de Oliveira, Senior Lecturer, University of Portsmouth (UK) Adaptability is one of the most important words in sustainable architecture today. From this perspective, this book looks at the work of a master of Brazilian modernism with lessons to be learnt on how to qualify indoor and outdoor spaces in social, environmental and architectural terms. Adaptive strategies as those seen throughout the work of Bo Bardi are key instrument/tools/concept to sustainable buildings and cities. − Professor Joana Carla Soares Goncalves, FAU, University of Sao Paulo (Brazil) The year 2015 marked the centenary of Lina Bo Bardi. This book is looking at Bardi's work through the perspective of adaptive reuse. Bringing together specialists on sustainability with specialists of Lina's work, the book generates an interesting new layer of discussion on the work of an architect that was never shy of controversy. − Associate Professor Fernando Luiz Lara, University of Texas at Austin (USA) This collection of essays makes a very important and engaging contribution to suggest that to take Lina as an inspiration is to deal with her contradictions and to evaluate the stakes of what she struggled with in a 21st century world. What the authors gathered here and have laid out is a very timely invitation to discern “Lessons from Lina” in relationship to today’s pressing issues of architecture and environment, sustainability, recycling, and developing an ethical design position in a world of diminishing resources and escalating challenges.“p>-Prof Barry Bergdoll, Columbia University and MoMA, New York (USA) The book features a Foreword by Barry Bergdoll.

A investigação, cuidadosa e inovadora, reconstrói em grande parte o universo dos próprios censores, por meio de extensas entrevistas tanto com esses, como com vários jornalistas. Traz à tona, portanto, a fala desse grupo conhecido pelo uso do lápis vermelho e da tesoura e sua face pouco vislumbrada. Michael Hall Doutora em História Social, Beatriz Kushnir lança, nos 40 anos do golpe de 1964, livro nascido de intensa pesquisa sobre um dos aspectos fundamentais do regime militar: sua relação com os órgãos de imprensa, da censura à colaboração. "O objetivo é iluminar um território sombrio e desconfortável: a existência de jornalistas que foram censores federais e que também foram policiais enquanto exerciam a função de jornalistas nas redações", explica Beatriz na introdução do livro. A pesquisadora explora a formação, as bases jurídicas e as diretrizes que orientavam o trabalho da censura, baseando-se em extensa pesquisa documental, além de entrevistas, inclusive com onze censores - aspecto inédito - cujo trabalho era "filtrar", na imprensa e nas artes, o que incomodasse o regime não só no campo político, como também na cultura e até no campo da moral. Outro foco do trabalho é a cumplicidade da imprensa, especialmente da Folha da Tarde - veículo onde trabalhavam vários militantes de esquerda até a época em que o jornal ficou conhecido como Diário Oficial da Oban (Operação Bandeirantes) - com o regime militar e seu aparelho repressivo: os diretores do jornal eram ao mesmo tempo funcionários da polícia, reconhecidamente. Eles mesmos confirmam em entrevistas. O livro toca num tema delicado, e indiretamente critica historiadores de renome que fazem a história da imprensa "esquecendo" o caso da FT. Cães de guarda explora os limites entre a censura, a auto-censura dos jornalistas e a complicada convivência entre governo e imprensa durante a ditadura militar.

Resultado de extensa pesquisa documental, Caio Prado Júnior – uma biografia política, de Luiz Bernardo Pericás, ilumina a trajetória de um dos maiores intérpretes da realidade brasileira. Figura emblemática no desenvolvimento do marxismo nas Américas, Caio Prado Júnior se tornou conhecido tanto pela originalidade de seu pensamento quanto pela militância política, que o levou a uma intensa atuação na Aliança Nacional Libertadora (ANL) e no Partido Comunista do Brasil (PCB). Seu esforço para entender a condição periférica do país em relação a outras economias e sua preocupação constante com a elevação material, cultural e de consciência política das massas fez com que escrevesse livros como Formação do Brasil contemporâneo, cuja tese "Sentido da colonização" consta como marco na historiografia nacional. Neste livro, baseado na leitura minuciosa de centenas de documentos (muitos deles inéditos), Pericás mostra como o ativismo repercutiu na vida e na obra de Caio Prado Júnior, indo das primeiras leituras às viagens para o exterior (inclusive para os países socialistas), do golpe de 1964 aos debates sobre a revolução brasileira, do breve exílio no Chile ao retorno seguido de encarceramento, chegando por fim ao legado de seu ideário para a esfera pública. O autor ainda discute aspectos teóricos da obra caiopradiana e elementos de seu pensamento. O grande mérito da biografia política que nos apresenta Luiz Bernardo Pericás é precisamente demonstrar que o Caio Prado Júnior historiador é indissociável do Caio Prado Júnior militante político. Em outras palavras, a opção que o jovem de família aristocrática tomou, decepcionado com os rumos da Revolução de 1930, de aderir ao Partido Comunista do Brasil (PCB) norteou o restante de sua vida e obra, sendo significativamente esse o momento que Pericás escolheu para abrir o capítulo 1 de seu livro, sugerindo que o que veio antes foi para Caio uma espécie de prólogo.

Euclides da Cunha's classic account of the brutal campaigns against religious mystic Antonio Conselheiro has been called the Bible of Brazilian nationality. "Euclides da Cunha went on the campaigns [against Conselheiro] as a journalist and what he returned with and published in 1902 is still unsurpassed in Latin American literature. Cunha is a talent as grand, spacious, entangled with knowledge, curiosity, and bafflement as the country itself. . . . On every page there is a heart of idea, speculation, dramatic observation that tells of a creative mission undertaken, the identity of the nation, and also the creation of a pure and eloquent prose style."—Elizabeth Hardwick, Bartleby in Manhattan

A peasant family, driven by the drought, walks to exhaustion through an arid land. As they shelter at a deserted ranch, the drought is broken and they linger, tending cattle for the absentee ranch owner, until the onset of another drought forces them to move on, homeless wanderers again. Yet, like the desert plants that defeat all rigors of wind and weather, the family maintains its will to survive in the harsh and solitary land. Intimately acquainted with the region of which he writes and keenly appreciative of the character of its inhabitants, into whose minds he has penetrated as few before him, Graciliano Ramos depicts them in a style whose austerity well becomes the spareness of the subject, creating a gallery of figures that rank as classic in contemporary Brazilian literature.

Throughout the nineteenth century the idyllic island of Fernando de Noronha, which lies two hundred miles off Brazil's northeastern coast, was home to Brazil's largest forced labor penal colony. In Punishment in Paradise Peter M. Beattie uses Noronha as a case study to understand nineteenth-century Brazil's varied social and cultural values, especially in relation to justice, class, color, civil condition, human rights and labor. As Brazil’s slave population declined after 1850, the use of colonial-era disciplinary practices at Noronha—such as flogging and forced labor—stoked anxieties about human rights and Brazil’s international image. Beattie contends that the treatment of slaves, convicts, and other social categories subject to coercive labor extraction were interconnected and that reforms that benefitted one of these categories made them harder to deny to others. In detailing Noronha's history and the end of slavery as part of an international expansion of human rights, Beattie places Brazil firmly in the purview of Atlantic history.

Helio Oiticica was one of the most creative artists of the twentieth century and played a key role in the development of Latin American art and culture. Since his premature death at the age of forty-three, his influence and importance continues to grow. A key figure in the Tropicalia movement in Brazil that revolutionised popular music and the arts in the 1970s, he fell foul of the military regime and was forced into exile in London and New York, where he forged new alliances and was a key influence to a wide range of artists. Among his most original achievements was the innovative and uncompromising use of colour that was a feature of his entire career, from his early abstract compositions to his later sculptures and large-scale installations. Combining it with rhythm, music and performance, he used colour to stimulate visual and tactile sensations, drawing in and involving his audience.

A Brazilian master novelist in English at last For André, a young man growing up on a farm in Brazil, life consists of “the earth, the wheat, the bread, our table, and our family.” He loves the land, fears his austere, pious father, who preaches from the head of the table as if from a pulpit, and loathes himself as he begins to harbor shameful feelings for his sister Ana. Lyrical and sensual, written with biblical intensity, this classic Brazilian coming-of-age novel follows André’s tormented path. He falls into the comforting embrace of liquor as—in his psychological and sexual awakening—he must choose between body and soul, obligation and freedom.
