Amazônia, Amazônias (Portuguese Edition) by Carlos Walter Porto Gonçalves

By Carlos Walter Porto Gonçalves

Produto de 22 anos de uma pesquisa intensa, crítica e apaixonada sobre a região. Obra delineada para acabar com mitos sobre a realidade neighborhood e para dar o devido destaque aos protagonistas que se empenham em promover o desenvolvimento da região. Nem pulmão do mundo, intocável natureza, nem relíquia que desperta a cobiça das potências externas; a Amazônia é heterogênea, contraditória, desigual. Mais do que "Amazônia", são "amazônias" que se desvelam neste livro ousado e esclarecedor.
