Brazilian foreign policy during the Quadros and Goulart era was established on the principles of self-determination, non-interventionism, economic and political independence. Independent Foreign Policy defined by the president Jânio Quadros showed the Brazilian autonomous political iniciative which led to the end of the traditional foreign policy based on close relations with the United States. Bilateral relations between the two nations were at its peak in the post-war times and began to deteriorate in the early fifties when American foreign policy established principles of national security and active anti-communist agendain Europe and Asia and thus put LatinAmerican affairs on the back burner. Brazilian administratives began searching for new economic allies in the Eastern block and the Third World in order to revitalise domestic market. Meanwhile, acomplex historical process of modernization led to a formation of new social strata. The working and the middle class that emerged shapedtheir politicalagenda around a unique demand for greater political role in the society.This brought about social tensions which resluted in coup d'état in 1930 that ended with the old political system which favoured the landed elite. In the decades that followed, different socioeconomic groups and a growing economic depression created a situation of political caos that culminated in 1964 when military generals deposed the president Goulart and enforced a military regime which ruled Brazil for the next twenty-one years.
