The Brazilian State: Debate and Agenda
We are delighted to announce the launch of the bookThe Brazilian State: Debate and Agenda (Lanham and New York: Lexington Books, 2011) edited by Professors Mauricio Font and Laura Randall, with the special assistance of Janaina Saad.
Part of the Bildner Western Hemisphere Studies series,The Brazilian State explores the changing roles, relation with society, and overall impact of the contemporary Brazilian State. The 16 chapters by scholars from Brazil and the United States contribute to the understanding of various policy areas in an emerging and fast-growing country. Collectively, the papers probe the relationship between state reform, institutional development, policy effectiveness, and economic dynamics since the 1930s, and provide analyses of issues that will be the center of debate in the presidency of the newly-elected Dilma Rousseff.
