Notes
-  Fernando Henrique Cardoso, sociologist, politician and president of Brazil from 1994 to 2002, was born in Rio de Janeiro. He received his doctorate from the University of Sao Paulo, where he began his career as a sociology professor and opponent of Brazil's military dictators. He lived in exile from 1964 to 1968. Upon his return to Brazil, the government suspended his civil rights, and he was banned from teaching. Cardoso was later elected to the Senate representing the state of Sao Paulo and became one of the founders of Brazil's centrist Social Democratic Party. Known as an inflation-fighting supporter of free market reforms, Cardoso became economy minister of Brazil in 1993. His scholarly writings include the classic "Dependency and Development in Latin America," a work that established his reputation as a world-class sociologist. He has been visiting professor at various academic centers in Europe and the United States, including the Collège de France, the University of Paris, the University of Cambridge, the University of California at Berkeley and Stanford University. In 2003-2004, Cardoso was a Distinguished Visiting Scholar in the Kluge Center. He is currently professor at large at Brown University's Thomas J. Watson Jr. Institute for International Studies.
