THE ALLIANCE BETWEEN LAND AND CAPITAL DURING THE BRAZILIAN DICTATORSHIP
This article aims to understand the economic, political and territorial foundation of the alliance between land and capital in Brazil from the imposition of the civil-military dictatorship (1964-1985), to reveal our understanding from three interrelated processes: the ideological arrangement that brought about the military coup, the production of the Land Act - promulgated on November 30, 1964 as a rural development project and not agrarian reform - and the land grabbing institutionalized by the authoritarian State over its 21 years. This alliance established a territorial pact that modernized the national State and placed the elites in power, namely the urban-industrial bourgeoisie and the large landowners. The text seeks to return to history to verify the mechanisms that established the alliance between land and capital from the analysis of legislation and the legal framework, official speeches and a literature review of / about the authoritarian State in order to understand the historical background of the Brazilian agrarian issue.
