PORTUGAL AND BRAZIL IN TRANSITION, edited by Raymond S. Sayers, published by the University of Minnesota Press, Minneapolis. . [Dim. aprox. 18 x 26 cm.] de VIII-367-[I] págs. E.
“Through a series of essays on various aspects of Portuguese and Brazilian culture, this book presents an enlightening picture of contemporary civilization in the two countries and a forecast of what the next twenty years or so may bring. The authors discuss subjects in such basic fields as literature, linguistics, history, the social sciences, geography, the fine arts, music, and natural science. Taken as a whole, the contents demonstrate the logic of organizing a volume not around a geographical concept but, rather, around a historical concept, in this case “the worls the Portuguese created,” as Gilberto Freyre described it. The essays are based on papers that were given at the Sixth International Colloquium of Luso-Brazilian Studies, held in the United States in 1966. In addition to the essays, the book contains the text of comments and discussion about the papers. There are 27 major essays by as many contributors and comments by a number of discussants.
“Raymond S. Sayers, the editor, is a professor of Romance languages at Queens College of the City University of New York and senior lecturer in Portuguese at Columbia University. In an introduction, he points out: «Both Portugal and Brazil have been active contributors to and participants in Ocidental culture, and so the present and future condition of all aspects of their culture shouls be interesting to other nations. Professor França states in his essay on urbanization in Lisbon that in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries the other European nations were ignorant of the lesson in cuty planning that the Portuguese were forced to learn after the earthquake, but such ignorance should not exist today.»”.
