Death Without Weeping: The Violence of Everyday Life in Brazil

“Makes a case for ethnography as an art form. . . . A compelling, if deeply disturbing, account of women in a Brazilian shantytown.”—New York Times Book Review

“Hauntingly beautiful. . . . [The] richly detailed qualitative analysis has thoroughly convinced this reader, at least, of her arguments linking maternal behavior and child death.”—American Anthropologist
