About the Book
"In 2016, Brazil's elected president was removed from office under a flimsy anti-corruption pretext, to a significant degree by men facing serious and provable corruption charges. As the new unelected government moved to dismantle social and environmental protections, many commentators in Brazil and abroad perversely cheered the strength of Brazil's democracy and its fight against corruption. This book is essential reading for anyone who wants to understand these surreal and tragic events and the many forms of resistance to them. Through deftly contextualized, highly engaging interviews of political actors and intellectuals from across the Brazilian left, the book provides a crucial vantage on the new forms of anti-democratic power and democratic resistance that are emerging not only in Brazil, but also elsewhere." Sean T. Mitchell, Rutgers-Newark University Author of "Constellations of Inequality: Space, Race and Utopia in Brazil"
