  • Business-State Relations in Brazilby Mahrukh Doctor

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    In recent years, the spotlight of international attention on Brazil has often been in the area of logistics infrastructure?for example, on its capacity to deal with the high demand expected during the World Cup and the Olympics.

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 84.99

    This book poses a major revisionist challenge to 20th century British labour history, aiming to look beyond the Marxist and Fabian exclusion of working class experience, notably religion and self-help, in order to exaggerate ?labour movement? class cohesion.
