Bildner Western Hemisphere Studies Book Series
Brazil, (Lanham, MD: Lexington Books, 2004).
For years, successive governments in Brazil grappled with
the vexing issues of unequal distribution of wealth and runaway inflation.
In the 1990s, long-overdue reforms began to help tame inflation, streamline
bloated and ineffective government
Reforming Brazil is a thought-provoking examination of these and other important issues facing Brazil today, from privatization and agrarian reform to entrepreneurial programs and hemispheric integration. Written by 11 Brazilianist scholars from a range of disciplines and intellectual traditions, the book offers compelling new insights for international policymakers, economists and scholars of Brazil.
