This book provides a synthesis of the relationship between Brazil and Canada, or what comprises Canada today, with the objective of uncovering a neglected history. This book covers from the first known exchange of migrants between the two countries in 1828 to 1979 when a political openness in the Brazilian military dictatorship gave rise to a new chapter in the two countries' relationship. As the first synthetic treatment of this relationship, this book not only aims to build on the limited historiography that exists, but also to open up new interpretive channels that can be further explored in the future. Recommended for scholars of Latin American studies, history, and international relations.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Brazil and Canada: Economic, Political, and Migratory Ties, 1820s to 1970s brings to light little known historical connections and ties between Canada and Brazil. Rosana Barbosa makes an important contribution to understand bilateral relations between `satellite' countries in history and within the larger global context. Her research goes beyond the state-to-state relations to minutely analyze commercial and trade ties as well as the solidarities established between Canadian and Brazilian civil society actors. This is a timely and innovative book at a moment when ties between Canada and Brazil are more intense and frequent. Its breadth, scope, and the variety of historical data explored is of interest to both a Canadian and Brazilian public. -- Charmain Levy, Universite du Quebec en Outaouais
Geopolitically distant but apparently obvious partners, divided by US power and global neighborhoods, Brazil and Canada share a long and frustrating relationship of friendship sought but so far never achieved. In a richly-documented and pioneering work complete with surprising insights, Professor Rosana Barbosa explores this continuing dilemma-both historical backdrop and its diplomatic, commercial, and migratory dimensions. -- Edgar J. Dosman, York University
