Life in a War Zone

February 26, 2018 U.S. News & World Report

Postdoctoral Fellow Nick Barnes, along with Stephanie Savell, Co-Director of the Costs of War Project, in U.S. News & World Report, "The Brazilian military prides itself on always being ready to step in and save the nation, seeing itself as a bastion of responsibility and ethics amid chaos, corruption and criminality. Even today, there are many within the military who view the dictatorship as having been a necessary measure to rescue Brazil from incompetent political leadership. It is not too much of a stretch, therefore, to view this military takeover as a warning about Brazilian democracy."
