O que é este blog?
Este blog trata basicamente de ideias, se possível inteligentes, para pessoas inteligentes. Ele também se ocupa de ideias aplicadas à política, em especial à política econômica. Ele constitui uma tentativa de manter um pensamento crítico e independente sobre livros, sobre questões culturais em geral, focando numa discussão bem informada sobre temas de relações internacionais e de política externa do Brasil.

New Book: The Brazilian State: Debate and Agenda
The Brazilian State: Debate and Agenda
We are delighted to announce the forthcoming publication The Brazilian State: Debate and Agenda (Lanham and New York: Lexington Books, 2011). This is a collection of essays edited by Professors Mauricio Font and Laura Randall, with the special assistance of Janaina Saad.
Part of the Bildner Western Hemisphere Studies series, this book contains papers and discussions from the conference The Brazilian State: Paths and Prospects of Dirigisme and Liberalization held at The Graduate Center, City University of New York, in November 2009.
The Brazilian State explores the changing roles, relation with society, and overall impact of the contemporary Brazilian State.
The 16 chapters by scholars from Brazil and the United States contribute to the understanding of various policy areas in an emerging and fast-growing country. Collectively, the papers probe
the relationship between state reform, institutional development, policy effectiveness, and economic dynamics since the 1930s. They provide analyses of issues that will be the center of debate in the presidency of the newly-elected Dilma Rousseff.
This volume is scheduled for publication in early 2011.
Mauricio A. Font is Professor of Sociology at The Graduate Center of the City University of New York, and director of the Bildner Center for Western Hemisphere Studies.
Laura Randall is Professor Emerita of Economics at Hunter College of the City University of New York.
Janaina Saad is Research Associate at the Bildner Center for Western Hemisphere Studies.
