Rio de Janeiro: Microcosm of the Future. The Humanist read online review & book description:
When George Hawrylyshyn found it necessary to dodge a stray bullet in the bedroom of his apartment in midtown Copacabana, situated on one of the breathtaking beaches in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, he decided it was time to move to a quieter neighborhood. He had been a correspondent for the Associated Press and was now a successful publisher, living in a plush part of Rio, but near a favela, one of the over four hundred slums in that metropolis of more than ten million people. In Rio one in every four Cariocas (as the inhabitants are called) lives in a slum. So for the rich and affluent there is almost no escape from the ever-increasing number of poor who exercise their right to enjoy the view from the hills overlooking the sea.
