Year of Lead: Washington, Wall Street and the New Imperialism in Brazil

corruption books fascism politics military Brazil CIA regime change coup

As empire looked on, the leading candidate was jailed, a rising star was assassinated, and a fascist ascended - in the violent, post-truth hysteria of Brazil's dirtiest election year in modern history.

A few months later the newly inaugurated President and his Minister of Justice would walk into the headquarters of the CIA in Langley, Virginia.

With twenty one diverse contributors, Year of Lead gives unique firsthand insight into the realities of this enormous country, and how foreign designs on its wealth have again altered the course of its history.

A resource on Brazil's crisis, and how it got there.

"Understanding the tactics of lawfare, the misuse of corruption as a tool to elevate far-right politics and the ways in which the extremes of Brazil's situation reflect and parallel our global predicament is essential."
-Michael Brooks

"We cannot stay silent as social progress and the rights of millions of citizens in Brazil are threatened. We need to ensure the truth is known.
This book is timely, necessary, and will infuriate apologists for what is being done to Latin America."
-Richard Burgon, UK Member of Parliament
Shadow Secretary of State for Justice
