Cambridge University Press, 2008. — 616 p.The volume offers a comprehensive history of Brazil in the seventy years from 1930 to the beginning of the twenty-first century, during which Brazil experienced profound economic, social and political change. Brazil’s population grew from 35 million to 170 million. The population classified as urban rose from less than 30 percent to more than 80 percent (90 percent in the southeast). GDP grew (at least until 1980, after which there followed two ‘lost decades’ in terms of economic growth) at an average annual rate of almost 7 percent, one of the fastest rates of growth in the world. A traditional society based largely on agriculture was transformed into a modern urban society with a strong industrial base: the proportion of the economically active population in agriculture and rural activities fell from two-thirds to one-quarter, while in industry it rose from 10 to 20 percent.
