"Exile within Exiles is an elegiac homage to Herbert Daniel. . . . James N. Green artfully brings to life the history of a man on the margins who defied easy categorization. . . . In the process, Green presents an innovative approach to grasping the imbrications of sexuality and politics in modern Latin American history." -- Patrick William Kelly * Middle Atlantic Review of Latin American Studies *
"James N. Green captures the life of an extraordinary figure in late twentieth-century Brazil and does so with great detail and sensitivity. . . . Beautifully researched and realized, Exile Within Exiles is the story, not only of a man, but a movement. Its apt title is the perfect metaphor for a gay man whose sexuality was not widely accepted by the movement that was so close to his heart." -- John Francis Leonard * A&U Magazine *
"Exile within Exiles is a refreshing addition to a growing genre that explores the intersection of public and private spheres, both in the lives of historical figures as well as in the creation of political movements."-- Larissa Pires * H-LatAm, H-Net Reviews *
"Exile within Exiles seamlessly merges the particulars of Daniel's life with the broader context of repression and mobilization in authoritarian Brazil, the cultural milieu and restrictions of Brazilian society, and the grassroots mobilization in Brazil's transition to democracy. The result is a compelling life-and-times biography." -- Colin M. Snider * Canadian Journal of Latin American and Caribbean Studies *
"James Green has produced a pathbreaking portrait that combines compelling biography with critical historiographical contributions." -- Benjamin A. Cowan * HAHR *
"A magni?cent and moving biography that tells a larger story about resistance to authoritarian rule, the struggle for democracy, and the assertion of gay subjectivity in modern Brazil." -- Christopher Dunn * Journal of Iberian and Latin American Research *
