Brazil: Reversal of Fortune
Alfred P. Montero’s timely and wide–ranging book explores Brazil’s amazing “turnaround” – from improvements to the working of its political institutions and judiciary, to the renewal of economic growth, the advent of innovative social policy, and the emergence of a new foreign policy agenda. Unpacking both overly optimistic as well as pessimistic views of Brazilian politics and development, Montero offers illuminating insights into the country’s transformation and its increasing significance on the international stage.
‘This book will delight political scientists interested in evaluating the strengths and weaknesses of what Montero calls the "new Brazil"’ Politique Etrangère."This timely book is a must read for anyone looking for a nuanced understanding of Brazil′s political, economic and social development over the last twenty years." Anthony Pereira, Director, Brazil Institute, King’s College London"Brazil is the best single–volume introduction to contemporary Brazilian affairs. A seasoned observer, Montero dissects the remarkable renaissance of Brazil since the mid–1990s, asking whether recent gains in governability and human welfare are sustainable. The answer is cautiously positive, but Montero successfully highlights the many unanswered questions posed by the new Brazilian model of development." Timothy J. Power, University of Oxford"A masterful treatment of both Brazil′s rise as an emerging power and its ongoing challenges of development. It will be essential reading for anyone interested in understanding how Brazil overcame its seemingly intractable barriers to economic and political development." Peter Kingstone, King’s College London
