Montero Publishes a New Book on the Politics of Brazil

January 23, 2014

Al Montero, Frank B. Kellogg Professor of Political Science, published a new book titled Brazil: Reversal of Fortune (Polity Press, 2014). 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, including its designation as the host of the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 Olympics. The book offers insights into the country’s transformation and its emergence to a position of prominence on the world stage.
