The Brazilian contracultura used to be a fancy and multifaceted phenomenon that constructed along the ascent of hardline forces in the regime within the overdue Sixties. targeting city, middle-class Brazilians usually encouraged by way of the foreign counterculture that flourished within the usa and components of western Europe, Dunn indicates how new understandings of race, gender, sexuality, and citizenship erupted less than even the main oppressive political stipulations.

Dunn unearths formerly missed connections among the counterculture and Brazilian track, literature, movie, visible arts, and substitute journalism. In chronicling desbunde, the Brazilian hippie stream, he exhibits how the nation of Bahia, popular for its Afro-Brazilian tradition, emerged as a countercultural mecca for adolescence looking for religious possible choices. As this severe and expansive publication demonstrates, a few of the country's social and justice hobbies have their origins within the countercultural attitudes, practices, and sensibilities that flourished in the course of the army dictatorship.
