"A detailed survey of ... literature on Brazil by British (and some Irish) authors published between the late 15th century and the present day. It first surveys the relatively few descriptions of Brazil under Portuguese colonial rule in British travel narratives. Secondly, it offers a comprehensive guide to the many, lengthier accounts of Brazil by British residents and British visitors during the 19th and early 20th centuries. Finally, it examines the books on Brazil by British scholars in universities and other research institutions and by British travellers and independent authors during the second half of the twentieth century"--P.
