'This book is a must-read for those seeking to understand right-wing authoritarianism in contemporary Brazil. It connects Brazil's street protests of 2013 - a moment celebrated by progressives at the time - to the eventual rise of Jair Bolsonaro. The essays presented here highlight key insights from top scholars in the field, and offer context for understanding politics and the future of Brazilian democracy.'
