  • Roberto Véras de Oliveira
Chapter
Part of the SpringerBriefs in Sociology book series (BRIEFSSOCY)

Abstract

This chapter aims to contextualize briefly the foundations of Brazil’s historical development, highlighting its socially contradictory character. So, it was selected some aspects and moments considered more relevant between 1930s and 1970s, as far as possible trying to relate it to the matters of development, labor relations, social regulation policies, and political struggle for democracy. A basic bibliographical review, in essential terms, was also made focusing on the approaches that dealt with these marked moments and events. Thus, we intend to present the Brazilian social question in its historical foundations and in an understandable way for readers of English language.

Keywords

Brazilian development Social question Struggles for democracy and social rights Social regulation policies Working class
