Description: Brazil's traditionally agrarian economy, based initially on slave labor & later on rural labor & tenancy arrangements, established inequalities that have not diminished even with industrial development & urban growth. While fertility & infant mortality rates have dropped significantly & life expectancy has increased during the past thirty years, the gaps in mortality between rich & poor have remained constant. And among the poor of different races, including the 45 percent of Brazil's population identified as preto ("black") or pardo ("brown") in the official census, persistent inequalities cannot be explained by the shortcomings of national economic development or failure of the "modernization" process. Reichmann assembles the most important work of Brazilians writing today on contemporary racial dynamics in policy-relevant areas: the construction of race & color classification systems, access to education, employment & health, racial inequalities in the judiciary & politics, & black women's status & roles. Despite these glaring social inequalities, racial discrimination in Brazil is poorly understood, both within & outside Brazil. The still-widespread notion of harmonious "racial democracy" in Brazil was first articulated by anthropologist Gilberto Freyre in the 1930s & was subsequently reinforced by the popular media, social observers, & scholars. By giving voice to Brazilians' own interpretations of race, this volume represents an essential contribution to the increasingly international debates about the African diaspora & comparative constructions of race.
