Abstract

BIROLI, Flavia. Liberdade de imprensa: margens e definições para a democracia durante o governo de Juscelino Kubitschek (1956-1960). Rev. Bras. Hist. [online]. 2004, vol.24, n.47, pp. 213-240. ISSN 1806-9347.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-01882004000100009.

This study analyzes some aspects related to press and politics in Juscelino Kubitschek's government (1956-1960), focusing the debates or the project of a new press law presented by the government to the National Congress in October 1956. Although the project was never voted, it was the theme for debates that were in the papers and in Congress for over two months, creating the possibility to analyze the meanings assumed by the notion of democracy and the role projected to the press in democratic politics at that moment. Those debates have also turned into an interesting material to the study of political practices and thoughts mobilized by Brazilian elites in that period.

Keywords : Kubitschek's government (1956-1960); Democracy; Press.
