Full description of the book Brazil:One of the most dynamic economic and cultural forces of the twenty-first century, Brazil is a remarkable country of diversity and character, with a forward-looking ethos that has ensured its status as a superpower. Combining the natural beauty of the rainforest, the remote territories of its indigenous peoples, the exhilarating mix of cultures to be found on the city streets and the country's fascinating history, Brazil explores every facet of the background and contemporary culture of this extraordinary nation. In the accompanying text from Lonely Planet travel writer and expert in Brazilian culture, Regis St. Louis, we PDF are authoritatively guided through the earthly paradises of the Amazon and sublime beaches of Bahia, to the Modernist architectural masterpieces of Oscar Niemeyer and the samba rhythms and exotic costumes of carnaval, exploring the unique mix of cultures that make up modern Brazil.
