The course begins with an overview of Brazilian culture and of the country's enormous resource base. Cultural change is traced through the pre-Columbian, colonial, imperial, and republican periods. A major theme throughout is the evolution of a Portuguese heritage into today's distinctive Brazilian national culture. The country is then divided into five regions as a means of understanding its internal diversity. Popular American ideas about subjects like carnival, the Amazon Rainforest, coffee, Copacabana Beach, and the huge foreign debt are also dealt with.
