“It is a pleasure to find a work that places the consideration of schools, students and teachers squarely within the context of the total historical and social setting.”—International Review of Education

“This is a welcome volume in English about Brazilian society and education. . . . [that] looks at twentieth century Brazil in terms of past and present social forces which have and are shaping education. . . . Its breadth offers a comprehensive look at Brazil [at mid-century].”—Comparative Education Review

“The study is rich in substantive findings and is a valuable contribution not only to the sociology of education but also to the field of social change in 'developing' countries.”—American Journal of Sociology

“To those interested in the problems of educational sociology this book will be a welcome case study of a semi-developed society. To those familiar with the sociology of development, or the slowly growing number who apply themselves especially to Latin America, it provides a new focus on a crucially important area.”—British Journal of Sociology
