Nationalism in Portuguese Africa

Surya Narain Yadav (Author) Indu Baghel (Author)

The book entitled "Nationalism in Portuguese Africa" critically investigates the basic nature and characteristics of the portuguese colonial policy in Africa, with a particular focus on Angola. Penetration of Portugal in Africa is an important issue in the study of the colonial history. As a result, a separate chapter has been devoted to this particular area. Economic factor has always been an important consideration in the colonisation of Africa. A thorugh examination of the economic conditions prevailing in Portugal as well as Africa, particularly Angola makes it abundantly clear that economy has been the dominant consideration in the Portuguese African policy.

Rise of anti-colonial movements in the Portuguese Africa, especially after the Second World War has been examined in details. All the three leading Angolan liberation movements constitute the significant part of this book. Impact of angolan liberation movements on the political, economic and socio-cultural milieu of Angola is the specific part of this study.

The book is the priginal, comprehensive and critical analysis of the emergence of nationalism in Portuguese Africa. in general and Angola in particular. The authors are fully convinced that it would provide an entirely new direction to the study of colonialism and nationalism.
