Brutality Garden. Tropicália and the Emergence of a Brazilian Counterculture.CHRISTOPHER DUNN: Chapel Hill, NC: University of North Carolina Press, 2001.
In the late 1960s, Brazilian artists were in a curious position: the military had seized power in 1964, overthrowing a left-leaning populist government that proved powerless to rally resistance to the coup. In the realm of culture, however, specifically in those film, theater and musical circles which straddled the erudite and the popular, and where educated, urban middle-class influence was decisive, the left, or the various lefts, seemed to hold almost absolute precedence.
