'The contradiction between neoliberalism and democracy is now well-known: this book offers a new and profound insight into this through a sharp and convincing account of the Brazilian experience... This is critical political economy at its best' -- Jayati Ghosh, Professor of Economics at the Centre for Economics Studies and Planning, Jawaharlal University, New Delhi 'Saad-Filho and Morais excel at providing a critical, powerful and persuasive analysis for Brazil's economic, social, and political development since the 1930s, emphasizing distinct transition paths from dictatorship to democracy and from state-led industrialization to neoliberalism. Grounded on a solid marxist political economy framework, this book is a must-read to understand Brazil's current predicament and defying challenges ahead' -- Lena Lavinas, Professor of Welfare Economics at the Institute of Economics, Federal University of Rio de Janeiro

Alfredo Saad-Filho is Professor of Political Economy at SOAS, University of London. He is the author of Marx's 'Capital' (Pluto, 2005) amongst other works.
