The Making of Portuguese Democracyby Kenneth Maxwell
Pub. Date: 03/28/2003
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
This vividly-written book is the first comprehensive assessment of the origins of the present-day democratic regime in Portugal to be placed in a broad international historical context. After a vivid account of the collapse of the old regime in 1974, it studies the complex revolutionary period that followed, and the struggle in Europe and Africa to define the future role of Europe's then poorest country. International repercussions are examined and comparisons are drawn with the more general collapse of communist in the late 1980s.
