One of the books honored with the 2010 Brazilian Studies Association Roberto Reis Book Award is James Holston’s Insurgent Citizenship: Disjunctions of Democracy and Modernity in Brazil.
Each year, the Brazilian Studies Association (BRASA) of Vanderbilt University awards prizes to “the two best books in Brazilian Studies published in English that contribute significantly to promoting and understanding Brazil.” The award is named for Roberto Reis, “one of the founders of BRASA, who was committed to developing Brazilian Studies in the United States.”
Many congratulations to James for this incredible achievement!
Insurgent Citizenship: Disjunctions of Democracy and Modernity in Brazil is also the winner of the 2009 Best Book on Brazil in English by the Brazil Section of the Latin American Studies Association and the winner of the Leeds Honor Book for 2009 by the Society for Urban, National, and Transnational/Global Anthropology of the American Anthropological Association.
