Description

The series The Geography of Brazil presents a comprehensive study of the Brazilian macro-regions, with a highlight to the spatial interactions that have guaranteed consistency to each macro-regional section approached. Throughout the series, one can observe the changes that have characterized the territory socio-spatial dynamics. At the same time, the selection of topics for this study evidences the adequacy of surveys to new scenario in the field of geographic studies, both in Brazil and in the world. The series has been produced by the IBGE since the 1950’s, having been released in a single volume in 1960, encompassing the macro-regions identified at the time. The succeeding editions produced studies about the country for the decades of 1960, 1970 and 1980, with a gap in the 1990s and 2000s. In 2016, the IBGE resumed the discussion on a new edition of the study by releasing a volume entitled Brazil – a geographic and environmental view in the beginning of the 21st century.
