O diário de um médico alemão na “guerra dos hotentotes”/ Diary of Africa: the diary of a German doctor at the “Hottentot” uprising Author Karl Wilhelm Schinke year2009

This book is the result of a personal saga of a family lov-ertain points. After all, the author writes from the perspective of a culture that claims to be superior: the European one. From the point of view of this culture, the issue of moral legitimacy to dominate "inferiors" would be easily solved: from the own organizational aptitude and material capacity of the "superior" to dominate. It is exactly this supposed aptitude that little by little will be decomposed, in a sometimes irate way and at other times with ironic observations, in the account of Dr. Karl Schinke.

The Teutonic thought was and remains an important source of inspiration for Brazilian intellectuals. In this sense, the nineteenth century remains as excellent reference point for analyzing the German enthusiasm evident in representatives of national intelligence, among which we can mention Tobias Barreto. Rejecting outright copying of French culture, the intellectuals of that time aspired to reach the metamorphosis of reality itself nationally through a legitimate spiritual heritage of Brazil. This book, organized by Luiz Antonio Barreto, brings together diverse writings of one of the leading local thinkers, Tobias Barreto, who devoted himself to the study of the German language and sought to strengthen cultural ties between Brazil and Germany.

The 16 chapters of this book were written by 28 authors from different backgrounds and professional profiles, whose analyses often question the common sense. “Common sense misconceptions, driven by a knee-jerk reaction to drugs, investing them with a metaphysical evil character that is far from possessing”, write them. The book is a result of the Refresher Course on Attention to the Abusive Use of Alcohol and Other Drugs, offered annually by Escola Politécnica da Fiocruz. However, this book is addressed not only to health-care and mental health professionals, but to anyone interested on the subject: after all, drugs are the society’s key concern point nowadays, because of their growing consumption and the failed attempts to combat them.

Violence at school is considered an old phenomenon, but, in recent years, their severe consequences for students, families, teachers and the whole school community demonstrate the complexity of a structural and urban problem. The understanding of this topic, which also reaches the school, goes through the perception that violence is produced in interpersonal relationships, this being a complex subject which demands urgent discussion. This book, result of researches, brings different reports and promotes the debate on important perspectives, in addition to point paths that can serve as basis for possible solutions. This book won the first place in Education’s category of Jabuti 2011, the most traditional literary prize in Brazil.

A HERANÇA SIMBÓLICA NA aZULEJARIA BARROCA: os painéis do claustro da Igreja de São Francisco da Bahia / The symbolic heritage of baroque tiles: São Francisco of Bahia Church's cloister panels AUTHOR Patricio Dugnani YEAR2012

In a surprising and unpublished way, this book analyses the 37 tile panels of São Francisco of Bahia Church cloister, and thereby fill the existing gap in the wide bibliography of Portuguese tiles in Brazil. The enigmatic panels with mythological and hermetic themes seduce by their baroque plasticity and also by the secrets in them – secrets that now will be revealed. The reader is led by the mysteries of the creation of scenes “translated” by Otto von Veen. The iconographic method of Erwin Panofsty helps in the interpretation of this gift of D. João V to the Franciscans in Bahia. The hidden truth stimulates elucidation of that period interpolated by the power of the Church, the State and the philosophers, searching the union between Paganism, Christianity and Hermetics.

Sertão Sem fim Bariani ortencio 3ª edição

Bariani ortencio


Além da nítida referência ao modo de vida de um sertanejo em geral preso a pequenas cidades, a contística de Bariani ortencio, feita à base de uma oralidade marcante, tem na sua forma traços de um registro do dia a dia da vida sertaneja no interior de Goiás. mesmo em contos que possuem a estrutura tradicional da narrativa de poucas páginas, arrasta-se pelos textos um teor cronístico, pois neles não predomina um teor dramático. Seja no relato de emboscadas, nas negociações entre velhos conhecidos, no rejuvenescimento amoroso do velho coronel, nos conflitos que todo garimpo gera, na busca implacável de bandido, as narrativas de Sertão sem fim em geral declinam do tom dramático que o conto por vezes requer, para dar lugar a relatos que vão compondo uma visão do interior do Brasil.

Sertão Sem fim

This book is more than an ordinary songbook. Roger Mello’s talent as an illustrator has turned it into something playful, a universe in which Brazilian singer Zeca Baleiro’s songs interweave lyricism, comedy, good humour, originality, irony, and social awareness – text and image become, thus, inseparable structures.

SERTÃO SEM FIM / ENDLESS HINTERLAND AUTHOR Bariani Ortencio Publisher André Barcellos Carlos de Souza Maria das Graças Monteiro Castro Year2011

This book assembles twelve short stories which were originally published in 1965 by Brazilian publishing house Livraria São José. Far from establishing a narrative sequence as in a single plot, the stories represent a set of actions inherent in a particular concept of country life in Brazil. The characters they portray are simple men who reflect the sertanejo, i.e. the typical ranger of Brazil’s Central-West region. This third volume of the Artexpressão series is illustrated by Kátia Jacarandá, who offers the reader an archaeology of signs and symbols. Bariani Ortencio has published forty books in his long-standing literary career, including short stories, novels, detective stories, and recipe books, all of which are deeply marked by popular culture from Brazil’s Central-West region. He is a member of several writers’ associations, geographical societies, and cultural councils.

O Poema imperfeito: crônicas de biologia, conservação da natureza e seus heróis / The imperfect poem: Chronicles of Biology, conservation of nature and its heroes AUTHOR Fernando Fernandez YEAR2005

In fact, despite its title, this is not a book of poems. An interesting metaphor: the poem is the nature, and the book deals with ecology. Not academic ecology, but a distinct interpretation covering evolution and biogeography, decentralizing the man of this concept and introducing a new logic for the conservation of nature. Fernando Fernandez discusses the theme through literature, philosophy as well as through misunderstood scientists such as Thomas Huxley, George Hutchincon and Leon Croizat, who brought fundamental contributions to this science. It is a book of chronicles; as such, each chapter can be read separately because they treat different issues.

Livro do Rio Máximo do Padre João Daniel / The Book of Máximo River of Priest João Daniel Author Henryk Siewierski (prologue, selection and afterword) publisher Miguel W. Chaia year 2012

Geography and shape, detail and amplitude. The priest and the character who makes himself actor and author in the Amazonian world situate us in a way that we can understand the conquests and impasses of our own social and cultural construction over the centuries. Because of that, this sensible anthology conducts and brings us closer to a language that seeks to express the greatness of spaces that offer themselves in unlimited tropics, and the exercise of the implacable tyranny that would lead to the death of the privileged observer, the chronicler that was able to leave us an incomparable treasure.

Taking as reference the work The crisis of European sciences and transcendental phenomenology, by Edmund Husserl, this work intends on thinking the idea of God from the atheist way as a possibility of teleological and ethical motivation. The idea of God is taken in the philosophical perspective as a single pole, immanent entelechy to the universe that permits and motivates the constitution of a teleological ethics. In face of the complexity of the problem we had to follow the three fundamental levels of phenomenology developed not in a linear way, but intercrossed; this methodological procedure was used and recognized by Husserl as problems belonging to a “superior scale” are given. The results of the research point in the direction of the atheist way possibilities, in the openness to the idea of God.

As paisagens crepusculares da ficcção científica: a elegia das utopias urbanas do modernismo / The twilight landscapes of science fiction: elegies of urban utopias of modernism AutHor Jorge Luiz Barbosa year2013

The science fiction movies in this book are the raw material for the analysis of the yesterday and today metropolises. In the simulated urban transformations, the geography of large cities haunts us and challenges us in its unreasonable tragedies.

Is it possible to live another future? We will be able to invent radically different cities from the apocalyptic ones that await us around at the next corner of time? These are questions that align to the narratives of Metropolis, Alphaville, Blade Runner and Matrix, here called into question in this essay under the title The twilight landscapes of science fiction: elegies of urban utopias of modernism.

Eduff Publisher of Universidade Federal Fluminense

André Dias’ work, Lima Barreto and Dostoyevsky: dissonant voices, brings the mark of this passion for Lima Barreto’s works, but a passion that does not ofuscate or interfere with the objectivity of the work in any way. André’s passion is the analysis, fuel for knowledge, and this is revealed by his careful reading of Lima Barreto’s works, specially Diário do Hospício, whose exegesis articulates a well arranged dialogue with Notes from Underground, by Dostoyévsky. By combining the focus compared to Bakhtin’s theory in the analysis of Lima Barreto, putting his works in dialogue with Dostoyévsky, André gives the creator of Policarpo Quaresma a new dimension, projecting him to the deserved level of universal writer.
