An old-school political do-coup d’etat-mentary

When president Dilma Rousseff was impeached in 2016 as a result of her connection to issues with the state budget, critics both within and without Brazil described the process as a coup d’etat. Maria Augusta Ramos’ THE TRIAL is a thorough in-depth analysis of the events leading up to this historical decision and the political culture that allowed it to happen. For as the political right embraces this opportunity to oust Rousseff from office, it becomes evident that Brazil’s authoritarian past is not buried anywhere nearly as deep as its citizens would like to believe.
