Reviews

"Cicalo's work is highly original and is the most thoughtful treatment of university quotas in Brazil yet written. This perspective is of considerable importance because of the light it sheds on the process as it is unfolding on the ground and in real time. His ideas for policy implications are interesting and suggestive." - John Burdick, professor of Anthropology, Syracuse University
