Emergent Brazil

Marshall C. Eakin

University Press of Florida

For decades, Brazil has lived with the reputation of a country of enormous potential—always unfulfilled. In this chapter, the focus is on the key factors over the past century that have led to the emergence of Brazil into the ranks of a select group of nations who will shape the world in the twenty-first century. It will emphasize the key historical moments and processes that have contributed to the emergence of Brazil on the world stage, and weight of the past on the country’s present, and future.
