Abstract

Reviews the evolution of public policy in a Latin American authoritarian state. The inhabitants of the favelas have not received any benefit during the period of Brazil's economic 'miracle' - it would seem that serious improvement in their situation must await major changes in the composition and ideological orientations of those groups in control of the state. -E.Williams
