Overview

In order to analyze Brazil's recent accumulation of capital in the light of its continued dependence, Peter Evans focuses on the relationships among multinational corporations, local private entrepreneurs, and state-owned enterprises that have developed in Brazil over the last decade. He argues that while relations among the three kinds of capital continue to be contradictory, a triple alliance has been formed that provides the social structural basis for the pattern of local industrialization that has emerged.

A work on the politcal and economic forces at work as Brazil moved into a growth period in industrialization and capital accumulation.

Editorial Reviews

The Annals
This is the most important recent book on economic development written from a Left political perspective. . . . Rare has been the industrial revolution which has equitably benefitted the generation which produced that revolution. What Evans has accomplished in this book is a brilliant analysis of the circumstances in which the most recent version of this kind of alienating development can occur.
