Abstract


Marcos Chor Maio and Ricardo Ventura Santos have compiled an excellent volume which examines the question of race and racial relations in Brazil. The anthology, which brings together the writings of mainly Brazilian historians and social scientists, provides an interdisciplinary and diachronic approach to the issues of race, ethnicity, and nation-building. Rasca, Ciéncia e Sociedade grew out of a conference held in Rio de Janeiro in May, 1995, and is divided into four thematic sections: race and nation at the turn of the twentieth century; the reinvention of race in the 1930s and 1940s; case studies of Brazilian race relations between the 1940s and the 1960s; and contemporary perspectives on race relations.
