Publisher Comments:

“Lingers book is a rare and exceptionally worthwhile treatment of the role played by violence in the lives of ordinary Brazilians. . . . Engagingly written, handsomely printed, with excellent photographs . . . and richly illustrated with several dozen interview statements that attain a life of their own, the book provides an indispensable analysis of the unwritten rules of Brazilian social intercourse. . . . A model study of use not only to specialists on Brazil.”—Choice

“A fascinating and original study of violence in Brazilian popular culture. . . . It is difficult to do justice in a review of this length to the richness of Lingers book—the high quality of his writing, the way he illuminates Brazilian history and historiography, the ‘thickness of his ethnographic descriptions, and the intelligence of his theoretical discussions.”—Bulletin of Latin American Research

Synopsis:

This book examines violence in the Brazilian city of São Paulo, looking at two conceptually linked forms of perilous face-to-fact encounters: Carnival, a bacchanalian festival, and briga, a potentially lethal street confrontation.

Synopsis:

An investigation into the meanings of violence in a Brazilian city.
