228 editions published between 1933 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 3,429 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Verdadeira revolução nos estados sociais do país, como diz Elide Rugai Bastos, Casa-Grande destrói dois mitos reincidentes: os que o Brasil era um país prejudicado pela localização geográfica e pela mistura de raças, Freire redime a miscigenação, mostra que nada tem de científica a afirmação de superioridade de uma raça sobre a outra e "afirma que a formação social brasileira se deve ao africano e que todo brasileiro é racial ou culturalmente negro", escreve Elide Bastos."

Junto com Casa-Grande & Senzala e Ordem e Progresso este livro compõe a Introdução à História da Sociedade Patriarcal no Brasil.

Mother and son; a Brazilian tale by Gilberto Freyre( Book )

34 editions published between 1950 and 2000 in 4 languages and held by 718 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The venue [of this volume]--always the same for Freyre--is Recife [a city in Brazil], and the scant tale is deeply set in the befores and afters of 1888-1889 when Brazil went through the eruption of emancipation and the overthrow of monarchy for republic. A note arrives at Freyre's door summoning him to the home of a wellborn widow who is not only an unknown distant relative but the exact prototype of the widow who is to figure in the novel that the author is about to write. Mirabile dictu, the parallels go on, and amazed the author releases himself from his novelist's vows and again becomes the sociological biographer.... This book--it hardly is a novel--isn't for everyone, but in its own private way it reveals much of fin de siecle Brazil when the sugar plantation owners reigned in Pernambuco and experience was the prerogative of the wealthy bucks and the impoverished blacks. --Kirkus Reviews, 4/17/1967
