Reversal of Fortune

Once deemed a ?dysfunctional? democracy with a
?feckless? set of political institutions and a
?drunk? economy, today?s Brazil has undergone a
complete reversal of fortune. Now in its third decade of democracy,
the economy is blossoming and large-scale development projects are
underway, including the exploitation of massive, off-shore oil
reserves, a nationwide effort to modernize infrastructure, and
preparations for the hosting of the 2014 World Cup and the 2016
Olympics. Inequality and poverty are reducing and even
Brazil?s political institutions are more governable and are
producing a higher-quality democracy than most observers once
thought possible.



Alfred P. Montero?s timely and wide-ranging book explores
Brazil?s amazing ?turnaround? - from improvements
to the working of its political institutions and judiciary, to the
renewal of economic growth, the advent of innovative social policy,
and the emergence of a new foreign policy agenda. Unpacking both
overly optimistic as well as pessimistic views of Brazilian
politics and development, Montero offers illuminating insights into
the country?s transformation and its increasing significance
on the international stage.
