Freedom Fighters: Anarchist Intellectuals, Workers, and Soldiers in Portugal's History


Product Information

"Anarchism emerged and developed amidst the social unrest in industrial societies. It was, in many countries, a genuinely popular movement shaped by a political philosophy drawn from the writings of both intellectuals and self-taught individuals.

Some eighty years ago, Portugese libertarians were organized under the banner of syndicalism. This movement deeply marked the history of Portugal. Freedom Fighters examines anarchist ideas and how these arrived in Portugal, and how the anarchist program gained popularity with both the working class and intellectuals, people who believed in the slogan 'with neither God nor master.'

This fascinating history is traced from the beginning of the 20th century through the Spanish Civil War and the Second World War. The role of the anarchists during Salazer's dictatorship is examined with much previously unknown documentation. Of particular interest is the history of the anarchists during the 1974 'Carnation Revolution' and during Portugal's emergence as a contemporary liberal democracy."

João Friere. Black Rose, 2001.
