 HLAS 53 Government and Politics Brazil
Influenced by the exhaustion of post-1964 authoritarian rule, as well as by their own democratic values, many scholars clearly hoped that political liberalization would pave the way for greater participation and equality to the benefit of subordinate social groups.
Von Mettenheim's mildly revisionist study of preferences and attitudes during the 1974-82 period criticizes the common notion of a "poorly endowed" electorate or a "deficient" political culture (item bi 91021854); instead, Brazil's emerging pattern of electoral politics resembles that of now-industrialized countries at similar transitional stages.
Research on State elites and the role of entrepreneurs in the post-authoritarian period necessarily addresses trends toward the recasting of State institutions and practices in the context of "free-market" models of economic restructuring.
