""A Place in Politics" will immediately make James P. Woodard one of the outstanding authorities in current debates on the nature of popular political participation in early-twentieth-century Brazil. It is a deeply researched, masterful analysis of politics in Sao Paulo at that time."--Bryan McCann, author of "Hello, Hello Brazil: Popular Music in the Making of Modern Brazil"
