About this book

Language: Portuguese

This book traces the conflicts and opportunities in the history of human action. Actions that caused changes in the ecological balance of the Brazilian Pantanal: the silting of rivers, caused by deforestation in the headwaters from the 1970s affected the main established economic activity: livestock. At the same time there was the arrival of fishing by tourists. The book explains the process the authors use to measure the impact of these two major trends on the low-income population. For this, the authors led a sociological survey of a large sample of coastal residents of the Serra do Amolar region. These survey results clearly demonstrate that local people reacted to the change with a radical change of economic activity, leaving the raising livestock to gravitate toward fishing. They also left the chain of subordination to a powerful producer for a commercial activity in which they could retain partial autonomy. At the same time, some people shifted towards activities based around nature conservation.

Summary in Portuguese:
Traça os Conflitos e oportunidades da história da ação Humana. Ação esta que provocou transformações no equilíbrio ecológico da região, assoreamento dos rios, provocado por desmatamentos nas cabeceiras, a partir dos anos 1970, afetando d a principal atividade econômica estabelecida, a pecuária. Ao mesmo tempo, surgiu a alternativa da pesca feita por turistas. Aponta o processo que emprega para medir o impacto dessas duas grandes tendências na população de baixa renda. Para isso, os autores comandaram uma pesquisa sociológica com uma amostra ampla dos moradores ribeirinhos da região da Serra do Amolar. Os resultados dessa pesquisa demonstram claramente que a população local reagiu à mudança com uma troca radical de atividade econômica, deixando o universo da pecuária decaída para gravitar em torno da pesca. Deixou também a cadeia da subordinação ao grande produtor para uma atividade mercantil na qual detêm parcial autonomia.Ao mesmo tempo, algumas propriedades foram adquiridas com o intuito de conservação da natureza.
