Politics in Brazil 1930-1964

An Experiment in Democracy

40th Anniversary Edition

Thomas E. Skidmore

A thorough study of Brazilian politics form 1930 to 1964, this book begins with Getulio Vargas' fifteen-year-rule--the later part of which was a virtual dictatorship--and traces the following years of economic difficulty and political turbulence, culmination in the explosive coupd'ètat that overthrew the constitutional government of President João Goulart and profoundly changes the nature of Brazil's political institutions. For this 40th anniversary, Skidmore has penned a new preface, and James Green has written a new foreword.
