‘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.' -Dr Jeff Garmany, University of Melbourne Manifesting Democracy? explores the series of public protests - manifestações - that took place in a number of Brazilian cities in June and July 2013, when thousands of people took to the streets to demand improvements in urban infrastructures. This book critically examines the role these protests played in politics, the political and their relationships to urban space and culture. It also analyses their connections to the emergence of a ‘New Right’ in Brazil. Bringing together scholars from a number of different fields (geography, history, philosophy, art, political economy) and activists, this book is the first interdisciplinary English language anthology to address Brazil’s 2013 protests and the broader political and cultural questions they raise. As such, it is a major contribution to Brazilian and Latin American Studies in Europe and the USA, as well as interdisciplinary studies of social movements, urban culture and politics.
