Portugal: The Impossible Revolution

Portugal: The Impossible Revolution
By Phil Mailer
399 pp, Free Life, 1977
Purchase

An evocative, bitterly partisan diary of the Portuguese revolution, written from a radical-utopian perspective. The enemy is any type of organization or presumption of leadership. The book affords a good view of the mood of the time, of the multiplicity of leftist factions, and of the social problems that bedevilled the revolution.
