Synopsis

In the 1980s, Brazil emerged from two decades of military dictatorship and embarked on an experiment in full democracy for the first time in the nation's history Since then, Brazilians have sought to live up to the ideals of this experiment while negotiating dramatic economic and cultural transformations.



In The Throes of Democracy Bryan McCann gives a panoramic view of this process, exploring the relationships between the rise of the political left, the escalation of urban violence, the agribusiness boom and the spread of pentecostal evangelization. Brazil remains a land marked by deep inequality, but in the last two decades the structure of that inequality has changed substantially. This is a country which remains an endlessly vital source of popular culture, now bubbling forth from different corners of the map.



In explaining these transformations, this book provides a fascinating introduction to one of the 21st century's most significant countries.

Bryan McCann teaches Latin American history at Georgetown University, where he is Director of the Brazilian Studies Program. He is the author of Hello, Hello Brazil: Popular Music in the Making of Modern Brazil (2004). His current research focuses on the recent history of urban conflict in Rio de Janeiro.
