Portugal: The Impossible Revolution?

by Phil Mailer, with an afterword by Maurice Brinton
£16.95   paperback  The Merlin Press Ltd (2012)

Portugal: The Impossible Revolution? by Phil Mailer, with an afterword by Maurice Brinton In 1974, Portugal was at the end of almost 50 years of fascist rule, and three colonial wars. Things had to change. They did.
 
The military coup that began on April 25th 1974 morphed into massive radical movements for social change. There followed eighteen months of intense, democratic social transformation which challenged every aspect of society. Portugal was daily in the world's headlines.
 
This is the story of what happened in Portugal between April 25, 1974 and November 25, 1975, as seen and felt by a deeply committed participant.
 
It depicts the hopes, the tremendous enthusiasm, the boundless energy, the total commitment, the released power, even the revolutionary innocence of thousands of ordinary people taking a hand in the remoulding of their lives. And it does so against the background of an economic and social reality which placed limits on what could be done.
