One of the most dynamic economic and cultural forces of the twenty-first century, Brazil is a remarkable country of diversity and character, with a forward-looking ethos that has ensured its status as a superpower. Combining the natural beauty of the rainforest, the remote territories of its indigenous peoples, the exhilarating mix of cultures to be found on the city streets and the country's fascinating history, BRAZIL explores - in six themed and exquisitely illustrated chapters - every facet of the background and contemporary culture of this remarkable nation. In the accompanying text from Lonely Planet travel writer and expert in Brazilian culture, Regis St. Louis, and foreword from editor-in-chief of National Geographic Brazil, Matthew Shirts, we are authoritatively guided through the earthly paradises of the Amazon and sublime beaches of Bahia, to the Modernist architectural masterpieces of Oscar Niemeyer and the samba rhythms and exotic costumes of carnival, exploring the unique mix of cultures that are the make-up of modern Brazil. BRAZIL is the ultimate guide to South America's largest and most influential country, which will be at the centre of the world's attention when it hosts the 2014 FIFA World Cup and the 2016 Olympics.
