Portugal's Revolution: Ten Years On
Cambridge University Press, Jul 25, 1986 - Political Science - 318 pages
This 1986 book was written to mark the first decade since a group of young Portuguese army officers ended fifty years of right-wing dictatorship, and is a major socio-political study of the fate of Portugal in the decade since the coup d'état. In over ninety hours of tape-recorded interviews, the authors have endeavoured to maintain their impartiality, and have conducted discussions with officers of both left and right involved in the shaping of Portugal's political evolution. Portugal's Revolution also describes life in the country during the fifty-year dictatorship and contains a wealth of factual material covering the period from the 1920s to the 1980s. It will be of interest to all those concerned with the pre- and post-revolutionary development of Portugal, in addition to scholars of Iberian and comparative politics.
