Connections between Brazil and the Middle East have a long history, but the importance of these interactions has been heightened in recent years by the rise of Brazil as a champion of the global south, mass mobilizations in the Arab world and South America, and the cultural renaissance of Afro-descendant Muslims and Arab ethnic identities in the Americas. This groundbreaking collection traces the links between these two regions, describes the emergence of new South-South solidarities, and offers new methodologies for the study of transnationalism, global culture, and international relations.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"[This book] succeed[s]... in casting light on those parts of Brazilian politics and society which relate to the Middle East and which, if not ignored, have been largely overlooked... The book's other great strength is in providing an alternative history from below, by highlighting the impact of globalisation on national culture and identity.August 2015"

"[A] valuable and timely edited volume that sheds light on the economic, political, literary, social, cultural, religious, and historical connections between Brazil and the Middle East.32.2 Summer 2015"

* AMER JRNL ISLAMIC SOC SCIENCES AJISS *

"

Truly one-of-a-kind book, this is a must read for students of geopolitics or international affairs, professional or amateur readers of Brazilian studies, and armchair historians alike. The Middle East and Brazil is a crucial study, certain to influence and inform future research on international affairs.
