In 2002, after a long political struggle, Lula was elected Brazil’s first working class President amid huge expectations that he and the Workers’ Party (PT) would bring much-needed reform. A great deal was achieved, including a dramatic reduction in poverty. But, just months before the staging of the World Cup in 2014, a series of social protests swept across the country. In 2015 further demonstrations erupted, with insistent calls for the impeachment of Lula’s re-elected successor, President Dilma Rousseff, for corruption. Brazil Under the Workers’ Party, the first serious look at what went right – and what went wrong – during the 12 years of Workers’ Party rule, tells a fascinating story of realpolitik, as Brazil’s first ethical party uses the old corrupt ways of Brazil’s dysfunctional political system to achieve real change and is then devoured by the political system it has failed to reform. An enthralling tale, of great significance for Latin America and the world, told by two experienced commentators on Brazil.
