Luso Brazilian Encounters Of The Sixteenth Century Book Description

by Alessandro Zir, Luso Brazilian Encounters Of The Sixteenth Century Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Luso Brazilian Encounters Of The Sixteenth Century books, As it happens with other early-Modern corpora, the descriptive texts from 16th-century encounters of the Portuguese colonizers in Brazil are well-known for their strangeness. In them we find references to entities like monsters and demons, bizarre descriptions, and odd classification systems of plants and animals. For the most part, these elements are dismissed as mere eccentricities by modern scholars studying these texts. Instead, this book takes these elements seriously. They are focused on and tackled with a theoretical tool—styles of thinking—not yet used in Luso-Brazilian studies, and coming from another field of inquiry: philosophy and history of science. By doing so the book aims to unveil epistemological and ontological issues in which colonial and post-colonial studies are entangled, and which have a relevance that goes beyond debates concerning, for instance, the formation of Brazil's cultural identity.

Sodomy And Sodomites In Luso Brazilian History Book Description

by Harold Benjamin Johnson, Sodomy And Sodomites In Luso Brazilian History Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Sodomy And Sodomites In Luso Brazilian History books, This volume of collected articles is the first to focus exclusively on the history of homosexuality in the Portuguese-speaking world. Of the thirteen studies included, nine make available for the first time in English the work of eminent Luso-Brazilian historians, including no less than three by the preeminent researcher in the field, Professor Luiz Mott of the Federal University of Bahia. Two others analyze in detail the first novels, The Baron of Lavos in Portugal and Bom-Crioulo in Brazil--both written in the 1890s--that portray a homosexual relationship in a frankly realistic way. The collection should serve as essential reading for courses in Portuguese and Brazilian social history.

The Global Opportunity Book Description

by Felipe Fernández-Armesto, The Global Opportunity Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Global Opportunity books, Though usually depicted as an aspect of the "European miracle", it is argued that imperial expansion is better understood as a world-wide phenomenon of the late medieval and early modern period, in which expanding societies grew outwards and collided from widely separated centres. This first volume in the Expanding World Series examines the potential for worldwide expansion by any region, whether it was China, the Middle East, Africa or the Americas, at the end of the Middle Ages and then explores why these nations failed or gave the initiative to the Europeans.
