LEITE, Sérgio Pereira. State, pattern of development and agriculture: the brazilian case.Translated byJeffrey Hoff. Estud.soc.agric. [online]. 2006, vol.2Selected edition, pp. 0-0. ISSN 1413-0580.
This article analyzes transformations in Brazilian agriculture in the light of the relations between the rural sector and the Brazilian model of economic development during the last 50 years. The article aims to distinguish the period prior to the crisis of the 1980s with that prevailing in the last two decades, focusing on the State's intervention in the rural context. Particular attention is given to the way in which the Brazilian State incorporated specific interests from different rural segments, both in the developmentalist phase and the subsequent period marked by fiscal crisis.
Keywords : Rural development; Pattern of development; Brazilian agriculture.
