Émigrés from the Land of Soccer and Samba
Maxine L. Margolis

—James N. Green, author of We Cannot Remain Silent: Opposition to the Brazilian Military Dictatorship in the United States

Memory’s Turn
Reckoning with Dictatorship in Brazil
Rebecca J. Atencio

“An extremely well-written, engaging, and interesting contribution to the scholarship on postdictatorial memory construction in Latin America. Atencio allows readers to see the multiple and layered ways in which postconflict societies construct and contest the meanings of the past.”
—Michael J. Lazzara, author of Chile in Transition
