Description - The Accidental President of Brazil by Fernando Henrique Cardoso
In 1993, Fernando Henrique Cardoso was appointed the new Finance Minister of Brazil-a country that had had seven different currencies in the previous eight years to cope with inflation that had run at 3000 percent a year. The position was a political death sentence. But by 1995, he had become President of the Federative Republic of Brazil. Brazil is a land of sophisticated music and brutal golddigging, of the next global superpower and the last old-time coffee plantations. It is gloriously ungovernable, irrepressible and attractive. This is Cardosos story and love song to his family, friends, and country.
