Abstract

Foreing writers, national vetoes - books and Brazilian censorship (1964-1985)ABSTRACT: This project aims at studying books written by non-Brazilian authors which were censured by tthe military regime between 1964 and 1985. We have limited our research to works of fiction. Our main goals were the extensive survey of such titles and and analytical studies of the vetoes. Our mais sources for data were bibliographical and documental. As an outcome, we have reached a understanding of the attitudes underlying such censorship, seen inside the broader spectrum of the Brazilian military dictatorship. (AU)
