  • ​The first and most up-to-date English-language volume exclusively on the Brazilian political system
  • A total of 23 articles present an extensive insight into the polity, politics and policies of the Brazilian political system
  • Fundamental analysis of the Lula da Silva administration and outlook on the current government of Dilma Rousseff     
  • A combination of several high profile Brazilian scholars together with a view from abroad guarantee a well-balanced analysis
This volume presents in-depth insights into the polity, politics and policies of the Brazilian political system. It reassesses the processes of change since the country's return to democracy in the 1980s, in the light of autocratic societal structures and suboptimal institutional design, on the one hand, and the political and economic achievements observed, on the other. In their contributions, top Brazilian and international scholars critically examine the development of the political system with a focus on the Lula and Rousseff administrations, and place their actions and failures in the socio-political and economic context so as to uncover the underlying institutional structures, constellations and diverging interests of actors on various decision-making levels and in different political fields. It is the central aim of this book to present a differentiated portrait of the current political landscape and remaining contradictions in Latin America's largest country.
