What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

A penetrating analysis of the ups and downs of labor mobilization during the first half of the twentieth century, The Brazilian Workers' ABC: Class Conflict and Alliances in Modern Sao Paulo illustrates how workers consciously and skillfully used any political opening to advance their interests and aptly confronted the tremendous constraints they faced.—Latin American Research Review



A major contribution to the study of Brazilian labor history. French's analysis is based on extensive archival and oral history research and on an exhaustive review of the secondary literature on Brazilian labor politics. His community-level work helps establish the empirical basis for better comparative analyses of labor politics in Latin America.—Industrial and Labor Relations Review



French's pioneering study of worker politics in the heavily industrialized ABC region of Sao Paulo challenges prevailing assumptions about the origins and impact of populist alliances in Brazil. His carefully crafted account of worker struggles and government policies raises the discussion of labor and populism to a new level of sophistication.—Barbara Weinstein, State University of New York at Stony Brook
