ABSTRACT

The international projection of Brazil in the last decade and a half caught the attention of the great powers and this includes more intensity and quality in Brazil’s relations with Africa. Even in the academy, studies about those ties between the Global South are, in many cases, laden with distorted, biased and shallow visions. In this sense, both Brazil and the African countries lack deeper and less speculative analysis of the roles that they play in international relations. Visentini’s book overpasses this superficiality, bringing up highly relevant questions and developing a pertinent historical analysis. The book has six chapters that cover a period since the relationship existed within the colonial logic up until the strategic resizing of the XXI century. The first chapters are dedicated to the historical analysis. By using major milestones of world history, of the African history and of the Brazilian foreign policy, the author traces objectively the path taken by the country and the continent for building their relations. The periods of distancing and rapprochement become evident and the conjectural reasons are presented, which allows the understanding of the multiple analytical levels: national, regional and global.
