As Brazil enters a new age and becomes an increasingly important regional and global participant, geographer Alan P. Marcus provides important and updated insights in his new book on this multifaceted country. He draws from multi-disciplinary approaches to explain key inter-relationships between regional, historical, and sociocultural elements which have shaped, and shape Brazil. Divided into three parts (thematic, regional, and case studies), Marcus offers various strategies to help understand the intersections between the physical and human geographies of Brazil. With a total of eight chapters, recent photos, graphs, maps, data from the Brazilian Census 2010, and three case studies, this book will be of interest to university students and faculty who are interested in Brazil and/or Latin American studies. Broadly-speaking, this book will also interest any reader who is interested in Brazil – especially since the collection of updated information in this format is not currently available anywhere else in the English language.
