Death Without Weeping: The Violence of Everyday Life in Brazil

by: Nancy Scheper-Hughes

Publisher: University of California Press (1992)

$28.95

Fascinatingly detailed look at life in Favelas. A great critique of medical modernization, a new perspective on Brazil's dictator and an important female/mother account! An anthro classic.
