  • Offers an up-to-date analysis of recent Brazilian politics and an interpretation of the unprecedented level of political polarization and mobilization the country has faced since the late 2000s
  • Provides a much-needed explanation of the formation of Brazilian left-wing politics in the last two decades, viewed through the prism of the labour movement, a key constituency of the Workers’ Party
  • Shows that despite the apparent decline of a trade union presence in politics in the developing world, the Brazilian example underlines that new forms of action and political involvement have emerged in the context of globalization

About this book

This book analyses the conflicts that emerged from the Brazilian labour movement’s active participation in a rapidly changing political environment, particularly in the context of the coming to power of a party with strong roots in the labour movement. While the close relations with the Workers' Party (PT) have shaped the labour movement’s political agenda, its trajectory cannot be understood solely with reference to that party’s electoral fortunes. Through a study of the political trajectory of the Brazilian labour movement over the last three decades, the author explores the conditions under which the labour movement has developed militant and moderate strategies.
