Thursday, April 8, 2010 - 1:00pm to Thursday, April 8, 2010 - 2:00pm

WHAT: God is a Brazilian, say the Brazilians. He may well be, because huge oil reserves have been found off Brazil's shore. The country is the largest and wealthiest in Latin America and has the world's eighth biggest economy. It wants a permanent seat in the United Nations Security Council. Edward Bernard Glick is a professor emeritus of political science at Temple University in Philadelphia and a former visiting professor of  Latin American studies at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. He has a master's degree in Latin American economic history, with a minor in Latin American geography, and a doctorate in international relations from the University of Florida at Gainesville. He has published over 150 articles, and his books include Straddling the Isthmus of Tehuantepec and Latin America and the Palestine Problem.
