Editorial Reviews


Democratic Brazil Revisited is that rare accomplishment, a sequel that improves upon the previous edition. Offering a treasure of new research, the contributors-leading experts of and from Brazil-critically examine the Lula government and the Workers' Party in power. Collectively, their essays illuminate the central paradoxes of contemporary Brazilian democracy: as democratic institutions grow stronger, voters more sophisticated, and economic performance and social policy outputs improve, civil society becomes more disillusioned and severe social, racial, and judicial inequalities persist. This book is an essential reference for every student of contemporary Brazilian politics.”
—Frances Hagopian, University of Notre Dame

“No matter what your field, Democratic Brazil Revisited is essential reading for understanding current trends in Brazil. Combining scholarly excellence with clear writing, Kingstone and Power have once again assembled some of the best research for portraying how one of the world's largest, most vibrant, yet most paradoxical democracies functions.”
—Kenneth P. Serbin, University of San Diego
