505 0  Religion and Race in Brazil -- Catholicism and Afro-
       Brazilian Identity -- Candomblé, Afro-Brazilian Culture, 
       and Anti-Racism -- Alternative Identities, Emergent 
       Politics --The Politics of Afro-Brazilian Identity. 
520    Brazilians of African descent draw upon both Christian and
       African diasporic religions to construct their racial 
       identities in a variety of intriguing ways. Focusing on 
       the Reconcavo region of northeastern Brazil - known for 
       its rich Afro-Brazilian traditions and as a center of 
       racial consciousness in the country - Stephen Selka 
       provides a nuanced and sophisticated ethnography that 
       examines what it means to be black in Brazil. Selka 
       examines how Evangelical Protestantism, Candomble 
       (traditional Afro-Brazilian religion), and Catholicism - 
       especially progressive Catholicism - are deployed in 
       discursive struggles concerning racism and identity. In 
       the process, he provides a model of wedding abstract 
       theory with concrete details of everyday life. Revealing 
       the complexity and sometimes contradictory aspects of Afro
       -Brazilian religious practices and racial identity, Selka 
       brings a balanced perspective to polarized discussions of 
       Brazilian racial politics.
