Fernando Cardoso is the former president of Brazil and a noted sociologist and academic writer who has taught in universities internationally. According to Journal of International Affairs contributor Sara Regine Haggett, Cardoso "emerged … [in] the late 1960s as one of the most influential figures in the analysis of large-scale social change, international development, dependency, democracy, and state reform." In the 1980s, Cardoso helped establish the left-wing organization called the Brazilian Social Democratic Party (PSDB). The author went on to become involved in establishing a democracy in Brazil and ridding the country of military rule. He eventually became Brazil's third elected civilian president after twenty years of military rule. However, his predecessors had accomplished little, with one dying before his inauguration, another impeached for embezzlement, and a third who almost resigned in frustration over the inability to bring about further reforms.
Writing about Cardoso's time as president of Brazil, a contributor to the Economist noted: "As president for eight years, Mr. Cardoso waged endless political battles to modernise the Brazilian state in the teeth of opposition from special interests. His great achievement was to bring political and economic stability and some social reforms to a country which had rarely enjoyed any." A contributor to Contemporary Hispanic Biography wrote: "During his terms, he emphasized economic reform, privatization, foreign investment, and funding for social services and education, and did so without a hint of the corruption that had plagued Brazil's former leaders. He is best known for his economic policies that succeeded in halting the chronic hyperinflation that plagued the country."
Over the course of his long career in politics and academia, Cardoso also authored numerous books, includ- ing a memoir. His most prestigious publication stemmed from his work as a sociologist and is titled Dependency and Development in Latin America. The book was written with Enzo Faletto and published in English translation in 1979. "In this work, Cardoso and Faletto examine the tendency of developing postwar Latin American countries to throw off political and economic dependency on foreign powers only to reestablish a new economic dependency on international capitalists and multinational corporations," wrote a contributor to the Encyclopedia of World Biography Supplement. "This academic analysis proved a valuable backdrop for Cardoso's eventual political career, which grew from an intimate understanding of the vagaries of international business and their effects on Brazil's domestic economy."
In their book, the authors examine dependency theory in sociology, which argues that underdevelopment in a country (typically third-world countries) is not necessarily an early stage of a country's development but rather results from exploitation by more prosperous countries and regions. Writing in Foreign Policy, Andres Velasco called Dependency and Development in Latin America the "magnum opus of dependency theory." Velasco went on to note that Cardoso and Faletto fostered a less radical approach to dependency theory that did not call for separation from the overall world economy as the more radical approach proposed. Velasco wrote: "The milder version of dependency, pioneered by Cardoso and his coauthor Enzo Faletto, and by others … was more useful. It maintained that under capitalism both rich and poor could grow but would not benefit equally." In a review of the revised edition of the book, Foreign Affairs contributor Kenneth Maxwell referred to the book as a "classic work" that "had an enormous influence on a generation of American scholars."
Cardoso reflected on his life in The Accidental President of Brazil: A Memoir, written with Brian Winter. The memoir does not focus on Cardoso's presidency, although three chapters are dedicated to his leadership of Brazil, but rather emphasizes the many people Cardoso met during his career, including numerous government leaders, such as former U.S. President Bill Clinton, who became a close friend. The book begins with Cardoso's youth growing up in a military family and under the watchful gaze of his father, who was a general. The authors then describe how Cardoso did not follow in his father's footsteps but rather chose academia and became a sociologist with an interest in the country's social problems. Cardoso and Winter also present many insights into Brazilian politics as they discuss Cardoso's political career and especially his tenure as president. In addition, they explore why Brazilians are lured to communism as a possible relief from the inequalities that they suffer.
The former Brazilian president's memoirs received numerous favorable reviews, especially for its depiction of Brazilian politics. Library Journal contributor Kristin Whitehair referred to The Accidental President of Brazil as an "engaging work" and noted: "This memoir … provides rare insight into political developments in Brazil in the last half of the 20th century." Commenting on the Spanish version of the memoir in a review in Foreign Policy, Paulo Sotero wrote that the book is "a fascinating inside story of his rise to power and the nine and a half years in which he tried, first as finance minister and later as president, to transform Brazil into a stable democracy willing to face the inequities of its society and the inefficiencies of its economy." The reviewer added that the memoir "is far from a self-glorifying political memoir. It's a detailed and reasoned analysis about reforms made or postponed under severe pressure and the rationale behind them. It reveals a leader guided by a clear sense of purpose and a deep knowledge of the society" of Brazil and South America.
Other reviewers noted that the memoir provides an excellent general history of Brazil. "This book should be translated back into Portuguese and read by every high school student in Brazil, not just for its coverage of recent times, but for the way it makes the whole sweep of Brazilian history come alive," wrote Ted Goertzel on InfoBrazil.com. Goertzel also appreciated that "Cardoso has not forgotten his sociology. He covers all the issues, from slavery to dependency to globalization, pension reform and neo-liberalism. But he puts them in a human context with anecdotes and personal vignettes accumulated over a lifetime in the whirlwind of Brazilian politics." Vanessa Bush concluded in Booklist: "Readers interested in the political history of this fascinating nation, of huge importance on the American continent, will enjoy this book."
