The conclusion seek to summarize the main arguments and findings of the book. By analyzing densely the case of the Northeastern workers in São Miguel Paulista, it highlights the attempts to build a bridge between local experiences and the great processes that Brazilian society underwent between the 1940s and 1960s.
