The military coup of 1964 and the twenty-one years of dictatorial rule that followed in Brazil genereted profound marks in the national institutions, with strong repercussions in all spheres of Brazilian society, such as the economy, politics and education.

The New Republic project, especially demarcated after the 1988 Costitution, did not break with the governmental model impregnated by the pratices of pernsonal favoritism, social exclusion of participatory processes and State violence, largely carried out by the Military Police.

The present work intends to investigate these complex relations of continuities between the recent past and the present, the resistances and the social representations of order in the daily life of Brazilian democracy.
