In rich ethnographic detail, Robin Nagle chronicles the life of a poor Brazilian community in its relationship to the Catholic church and to the larger politics of Brazil. Centered in Recife, on the northeast coast, Nagle's work investigates how liberation theology attracted followers, and demonstrates why the movement never took hold as predicted.
