This paper is a brief overview of the history of Brazil, with an emphasis on the racial problems that continue to plague the country, together with an examination of the social, educational, and economic problems it faces today. The study notes that in Brazil, entrenched oligarchies have resisted social change to date, and thus, the study finds little reason to expect change.

From the Paper:

"Brazil is one of the great tragedies of the world. A country with great resources and potential, it has been plagued with a history marred by exploitation, racism, and dictatorship. While it has managed many remarkable accomplishments and tremendous growth in such measures as total national wealth, it remains a country plagued by such chronic inequality and social strains that it is doubtful that the country can emerged as a truly developed country without massive social dislocation. Brazil won independence from Portugal and was an empire from 1822 to 1889. Only in the closing days of the empire was slavery finally abolished."
