Os Cadernos do Nosso Tempo e o interesse nacional

Hollanda, Cristina Buarque de


The aim of this article was to investigate how Brazil's national interest was interpreted by authors and editors of Cadernos do Nosso Tempo [Reports of Our Time], published by the Brazilian Institute of Economics, Sociology, and Politics (IBESP) from December 1953 to March 1956. Based on a systematic reading of Cadernos and the related bibliographic references, the author discusses the understandings of the political state-of-the-art, the nation's potential development, the obstacles to such development, and Getúlio Vargas' political legacy. According to IBESP intellectuals, nationalism constituted the only means for overcoming fragmented political experience.

Palavras-chave: national development; nationalism; Getúlio Vargas; IBESP; Cadernos do Nosso Tempo.
