   Abstract = {1968 in Brazil has long been remembered for the violent
             showdown between the student movement and military regime.
             This article argues that we cannot understand the crisis of
             1968 without taking into account a group that most studies
             have ignored – the civilian politicians who were bound to
             university students by ties of social class and blood. As
             they grew increasingly frustrated after four years of
             authoritarian military rule that had taken away many of
             their prerogatives, many politicians were infuriated as the
             regime violently repressed protesting students, and they
             joined marches and defended the students with their actions
             and words. This support for leftist students, culminating in
             Márcio Moreira Alves's speeches attacking the military,
             created irreconcilable differences between politicians and
             the military, leading in December to the decree of
             Institutional Act no. 5.},

   Abstract = {In 1978, as striking metalworkers, students, and a
             revitalized political opposition challenged the Brazilian
             military regime from without, a stunning rebellion by the
             regime’s civilian allies in São Paulo undermined it from
             within. Dealing the regime a shocking political defeat, the
             delegates to the regime-allied political party’s state
             convention rejected the generals’ anointed gubernatorial
             candidate and narrowly nominated the rebel Paulo Maluf, who
             would go on to be confirmed by a manipulated electoral
             college. Although Maluf and the delegates did not challenge
             the regime on ideological grounds, the mix of resentment,
             regionalism, and personal rivalries that drove their
             insurrection and the reluctant tolerance the generals had to
             afford it highlight the fragility of the regime’s support
             among those who were thought to be its most stalwart allies.
             Moreover, Maluf’s selection demonstrates key differences
             between the Brazilian military regime and its Southern Cone
             counterparts and expands our understanding of how
             authoritarian regimes placed constraints upon and were in
             turn constrained by civilian political elites.},
