Mauricio A. Font and Laura Randall, eds.

The Brazilian State: Debate and Agenda
(Lexington Books, 2011)

Part of the Bildner Western Hemisphere Studies Series, The Brazilian State: Debate and Agenda is a collection of sixteen essays from the conference “The Brazilian State: Paths and Prospects of Dirigisme and Liberalization,” held at the Graduate Center in November 2009. Collectively, the papers discuss state reform, institutional development, policy effectiveness, and economic dynamics in Brazil since the 1930s. Part I dwells on actors, contexts, institutions, and ideas; Part II deepens the examination of social and cultural policy; Part III shifts the focus to Brazil’s financial sector, the global financial crisis of 2008, and capital market dynamics; and Part IV looks at the country’s changing global relations. Mauricio Font (Prof., Queens) is on the doctoral faculty in sociology and is director of the Bildner Center for Western Hemisphere Studies.
