Reviews

"Students will appreciate the sophistication and timeliness of the data and analyses." - A.B. Cochran, Choice

"This collection responds to an immediate need for scholarly work in English assessing the first administration of President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, a moderate Latin American leftist, democratically elected and re-elected to power. Complementing Lula of Brazil: The Story So Far, this book offers a strong contribution to the field." - Edward A. "Ted" Riedinger, Professor and Head, Ohio State University Latin American Library Collection (former secretary to President Juscelino Kubistchek)
