Content: The book compiles texts from scholars and social militants, covering some of the issues about the Amazon, which we are interested in spreading, discuss and look at the facts in depth about this reality. The texts present the interests, dispute and the consequences of the struggle between two large political and economic projects for the Amazon region. On one hand, the project of capital, which has been perpetuated since the Brazil – Colonial; and on the other, the historical project from traditional populations, who have their lives and routes in the Amazon.
