I was inspired after the visit by the former president of Brazil- Dilma Rousseff to our campus. And I thought that it might be a good idea to re-start within our means the Brazilian collection development at UC Berkeley. To this end, a limited approval plan of Brazilan books was established. With the recent arrival of Professor Nathaniel Wolfson in the Department of Spanish and Portuguese, I am looking forward to continuing the targeted collection development of our Brazilian books with a special focus on the Nordeste. I strongly believe that this will help me to meet the research needs of our students in the Humanities and Social Sciences. Below are some of the new books from Brazil that have come in this week. Please click on the icon to get access to the photos of the selected book. If you would like to recommend something for purchase please feel free to contact me directly.
I live you with an interesting 2014 interview of Marcelo Lima by Professor Wolfson.
