Information
"Urban Space and National Identity in Twentieth-Century Säao Paulo, Brazil focuses on how the political, cultural, and technical networks within the field of engineering provided the space within which an important professional middle class prospered in the city of Säao Paulo and made lasting contributions to the development of modern Brazil. It centers on the influence of middle-class aspirations, morals, and manners in setting the tone of political discourse and competition during the critical years of1930-45. The book examines the development of local institutions and the history of urban planning and design in the city of Säao Paulo to explore sociocultural ideas and practices reflected in these middle-class professionals' work. Crafting Urban Spacecould be adopted in Latin American survey courses and History of Brazil seminars as well as Urban History and World Civilization classes. The book will be useful for specialists and newcomers alike"--
