Jeffrey Needell's Book on Brazil's Rise

The History Department is proud to promote Dr. Jeffrey Needell’s new edited collection entitled Emergent Brazil: Key Perspectives on a New Global Power, published this year by the University Press of Florida.  The contributors to this volume take an interdisciplinary look at Brazil’s rise to economic prominence and the dynamic changes that have occurred as a result of that development.  The essays explore not only Brazil’s internal change, but also the ways in which other nations have responded to its dramatic appearance on the international scene.  As one reviewer remarked, “All serious students of contemporary Brazil should read this book.”  Congratulations to Dr. Needell for producing such an important and timely volume.
