Keen to innovation and tradition alike, McCann judiciously weighs forces shaping postdictatorial Brazil. He interrelates political economy and cultural politics with care and insight, encompassing oral, print and digital domains. This is a remarkable and resonant report on the current Brazilian republic.

The Throes of Democracy offers a perceptive, and highly readable, interpretation of Brazil's recent past and present. An astute observer of politics, social mores, and popular culture, Bryan McCann constructs a portrait of contemporary Brazil that helps us to understand new and long-standing problems, while also accounting for Brazilian society's dynamism and ongoing democratization.
