    schema:description "This comprehensive set on contemporary Brazil is useful to students, business people, government officials, artists, and tourists -- in short, anyone traveling to or wishing to know more about this South American nation. Brazil, one of the world's largest and most populous countries, features a dynamic economy and a rich culture that increasingly fascinates people throughout the world. What makes this vital and vibrant nation tick? How do its institutions function? How do its people work and play? The two-volume Brazil Today: An Encyclopedia of Life in the Republic is an introductory work intended for those in search of basic information about Brazilian institutions, businesses, social issues, and culture. At the same time, it is a work that reflects the nation's geographic, demographic, economic, and cultural diversity. The wide-reaching encyclopedia offers an entry for each Brazilian state with information about the land, climate, economy, and culture. It also offers extensive coverage of the country's political parties and leaders, its governmental and non-governmental organizations, and the environmental issues and social problems that shape Brazilian politics today. In addition, the work pays considerable attention to the economy and business through entries on industry, agriculture, commerce, banking, and economic policies. Finally, there are entries that illuminate various aspects of Brazil's culture, including the nation's social movements, religion, education, music, cuisine, and literature, as well as personalities from sports and entertainment. - Publisher."@en ;
