Abstract:  For the fist time in Brazil's history in the 1980's it embarked on a road to democracy after 2 decades of military dictatorship. They have negotiated dramatic economic and cultural changes. While Brazil still remains a land marked by inequality the structure of that inequality has changed dramatically. McCAnn gives the reader a sweeping view of the rise of the political left, the agri-business boom and the endless sources of popular culture.
