Summary
"This book connects the work of US private foundations, the United States government, and Brazilian intellectuals to explore how they worked collaboratively to address racial disparities in Brazil during the Cold War. It reveals not only how anti-racism was promoted during this period, shaping the political and academic agenda, but also demonstrates the importance of American foundations, especially the Rockefeller and Ford Foundations, in the process. Drawing on a vast array of archival and published sources from Brazil, the US and around the world, the book investigates the making of transnational connections and networks that sought to respond to the 'race problem', seen as an increasingly dangerous threat to the liberal international order. This book is especially relevant to the areas of Race Studies, Social Sciences, Latin-American Studies, Political Science and History, particularly the History of Sociology and Anthropology, as well as to studies about the role of American foundations in the cold war period. It will also be of interest to activists, social scientists, economists, historians, journalists, NGOs and INGOs"-- Provided by publisher.
