The successful industrialization of Brazil, a strong "semi-periphery" state, is attributed to the country's incorporation into the world capitalist center as a result of a "triple alliance" of the state, international circles, and local elites, as sources of capital. The unity of the "alliance" will ensure sufficient economic surplus to satisfy mass demands for some time, but " . . . the redistribution of economic rewards and political power can only be postponed for a certain period." Class struggle and imperialism/dependency theory have shaped the author's approach.
