Book Description

First published in 1969 Brazil: Land Without Limits offers its readers the full flavour of this enchanting land that is Brazil. Malcolm Slesser travelled through Brazil during a year as a lecturer at the University of Rio de Janeiro and brings his sympathetic understanding and sense of humor to describe Brazil to its readers.

Brazil is a land of contrasts, of the ancient and the modern, the rich and the poor. From the dense tropical jungles of the Matto Grosso to Brasilia, the modern capital, and the beach of Copacabana, enjoyed by all races and colours, the scene is everchanging. To a European like Malcolm Slesser the country offers an enormous challenge. It exasperates, frustrates, enchants, and captivates. But Brazil is much more than an exotic tourist attraction. Its abundant natural resources make it a country to be reckoned with on a world scale. Author argues that it is ready to exploit its potential, to make it a country of limitless potential as limitless as the land itself. This fascinating account of Brazil will be interesting for general readers and for students of Latin American studies.
