Leserkritik

“With Urban Encounters, André Cicalo has delivered a much needed work in the pressing issue of affirmative action in Brazil, about which there is a dearth in the English-language literature. His very readable book will be a welcome addition to courses on race relations, urban anthropology, Brazilian studies, and Latin American studies.” (Vânia Penha-Lopes, Luso-Brazilian Review, Vol. 52 (2), December, 2015)

"Cicalo's work is highly original and is the most thoughtful treatment of university quotas in Brazil yet written. This perspective is of considerable importance because of the light it sheds on the process as it is unfolding on the ground and in real time. His ideas for policy implications are interesting and suggestive." - John Burdick, professor of Anthropology, Syracuse University
