Avoiding the Dark: Race and the Forging of National Culture in Modern Brazil

Ashgate, 1999 - 260 páginas
"This work examines the processes by which Brazilian nationalists forged and propagated an all-inclusive national identity, which attempted to promote racial harmony in the first four decades of the twentieth century. Based on the ideas of Benedict Anderson's 'Imagined Communities' (1983), this work examines the 'imagining of Brazil' by focusing on the state, intellectual and popular conceptualizations of Brazil through important institutions such as the Ministry of Culture, and major media for national communication in the 1930s. In order to understand the formulation of Brazil's dominant national ideology in this period it is also crucial to examine the views and voices of black Brazilians and the climate within which they emerged."--BOOK JACKET.
