Brazil has one of the most elaborate social security systems in Latin America. This study follows the progressive evolution of social insurance policy from 1889 to 1979, through four alternating periods of democratic and authoritarian governments: oligarchic democracy, organic authoritarianism, populist democracy, and bureaucratic authoritarianism.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"For those interested in Luso-Brazilian topics this is an informative and well-researched monograph on the evolution of Brazil's social security system. . . . which traces the evolution of social services in Brazil from their inception to the present by relating them to wider developments in that country's politics and society."
--Luso-Brazilian Review
"Malloy blends two perspectives to interpret what he finds-one economic, the other political. . . . Very readable and stimulating."
--Latin American Research Review
"Malloy focuses on the state, and the way in which governing elites used social insurance policy to achieve political aims. . . . Well argued and concise, this book is a relief from narrow technical studies."
--International Social Security Review
