Acerca de


Book by Diacon Todd A


"Stringing Together a Nation examines the life of one of the most fascinating, and debated, figures in modern Brazil, Candido Rondon, by melding traditional and new research approaches into an informal and clear narrative style of history. It brings to the English-speaking academic public a welcome deconstruction of recent Brazilian historiography on nation building, indigenous people, and state action. The research for Stringing Together a Nation is groundbreaking and brings to light archival materials that will change the way we understand how Brazilians discovered Brazil in the early decades of the twentieth century."-Jeffrey Lesser, author of Negotiating National Identity: Immigrants, Minorities, and the Struggle for Ethnicity in Brazil "This amazing story of dedication and persistence elucidates the life project of one of Brazil's major figures of the early twentieth century. Rondon persevered against politicians in Rio as much as against the natural challenges of Brazil's vast interior, stoically suffering the demands of safari-loving Theodore Roosevelt in the meantime. Ironically, the telegraph lines he built, like his Positivist ideological beacon, were both out of date by the time he completed his work."-Thomas Holloway, University of California, Davis
