Title: Roucos e sufocados: a indústria do cigarro está viva, e matando
Authors: João Peres and Moriti Neto
Publisher: Elefante
ISBN: 978-85-93115-16-5
AbstractFew people know that Brazil, the world’s largest exporter of tobacco leaf since the 1990s, fills the world’s lungs with nicotine. Roucos and suffocados offers a unique portrait of the Rio Pardo Valley, in Rio Grande do Sul, the heart of the national tobacco industry. It is from there that the speech – and the lobby – emanates in defense of the cigarette. The authors analyze the rhetoric that mixes the survival of small farmers with the interests of megacorporations in search of ever greater profits, and reveals how this articulation is used to curb public health policies and control of smoking. Behind the smokescreen are political, media, trade unions, organizations that say they fight against smuggling and even false profiles of the internet. Representatives and senators, mayors, former ministers, members of the Supreme Court and former Secretaries of the Federal Revenue: a vast and powerful network of favors appears in the defense disguised as an economic sector that kills half of the parish itself.

Title: The New Peasantries
Author: Jan Douwe van der Ploeg
Publisher: Routledge
ISBN: 9781315114712
Abstract – This new edition is thoroughly revised, with a reorganization of chapters and several new chapters added. It includes a new chapter on China, based on the author’s extensive fieldwork there, and much more information on Brazil. It integrates and critically reviews the many publications on peasants, peasantries and peasant modes of agricultural production published in recent years. The theoretical discussion is enriched with more attention to the seminal work of Chayanov. Greater attention is also paid to the construction of new markets – a theme that will remain the major issue in the coming decade. It combines and integrates different bodies of literature: the rich traditions of peasant studies, development and rural sociology, neo-institutional economics and debates on empire and globalization.

Title: As novas ordens alimentares

Author: Paulo Niederle and Valdemar João Wesz Junior

Publisher: UFRGS
Abstract This book analyzes the reconfigurations in the Brazilian agrifood system based on the idea of coexistence between different “alimentary orders”, a concept that the authors mobilize to capture the plurality of institutional and sociotechnical configurations that define the markets. Contrary to the idea of homogenization of the food system, the authors took refuge in contributions from Sociological Neoinstitutionalism, Conventions Theory and Practice Theory, as well as results of almost a decade of empirical research in different regions of the country, to unravel the complex of production practices and food consumption.
