  • “This engaging and beautifully written account of the life of Herbert Daniel captures the spirit and energy of a person I knew well. We did political work together in Belo Horizonte and then both went underground in 1969 to resist the military dictatorship. Exile within Exiles captures the essence of an extraordinary person living in a period of intense changes, who was a pioneer in the fight to openly express his sexual identity while struggling for a more just and egalitarian Brazil.” — Dilma Rousseff

    “An exceptionally original and deeply moving work, Exile within Exiles is an important contribution to the contemporary history of Brazil. There is no scholar better positioned to tell the story and significance of Herbert Daniel's life and political activism than James N. Green, who is the leading historian of gay politics and social movements in Brazil, as well as a major authority on the social, political, and cultural history of the period of the Brazilian dictatorship.” — Barbara Weinstein, author of, The Color of Modernity: São Paulo and the Making of Race and Nation in Brazil

  • Description

    Herbert Daniel was a significant and complex figure in Brazilian leftist revolutionary politics and social activism from the mid-1960s until his death in 1992. As a medical student, he joined a revolutionary guerrilla organization but was forced to conceal his sexual identity from his comrades, a situation Daniel described as internal exile. After a government crackdown, he spent much of the 1970s in Europe, where his political self-education continued. He returned to Brazil in 1981, becoming engaged in electoral politics and social activism to champion gay rights, feminism, and environmental justice, achieving global recognition for fighting discrimination against those with HIV/AIDS. In Exile within Exiles, James N. Green paints a full and dynamic portrait of Daniel's deep commitment to leftist politics, using Daniel's personal and political experiences to investigate the opposition to Brazil's military dictatorship, the left's construction of a revolutionary masculinity, and the challenge that the transition to democracy posed to radical movements. Green positions Daniel as a vital bridge linking former revolutionaries to the new social movements, engendering productive dialogue between divergent perspectives in his writings and activism.
