I have a long essay out in Jacobin that set out to do four things:
- Examine what the state of ‘anti-politics’ is in Brazil in 2020, in reference to earlier analyses published in Jacobin and elsewhere
- Review a book by Jairo Nicolau in which the 2018 election is analysed empirically
- Put into dialogue two short books – by Marcos Nobre and Leonardo Arvritzer – that both examine Bolsonaro’s first 18 months in government in light of anti-politics
- Advance an argument about Brazilian politics, in which the military and the old clientelist/patrimonialist, right-wing parties have returned with a vengeance
