Summary
"This book traces the rise and decline of Gilberto Freyre's vision of racial and cultural mixture (mesticagem - or race mixing) as the defining feature of Brazilian culture in the twentieth century. Eakin traces how mesticagem moved from a conversation among a small group of intellectuals to become the dominant feature of Brazilian national identity, demonstrating how diverse Brazilians embraced mesticagem, via popular dance and music, film and television, literature, soccer, and protest movements. The Freyrean vision of the unity of Brazilians built on mesticagem begins a gradual decline in the 1980s with the emergence of an identity politics stressing racial differences and multiculturalism"--
