Lisbon Rising

Urban Social Movements in the Portuguese Revolution, 1974-75

Pedro Ramos Pinto

Published by Manchester University Press

  • An original study of the widest urban movement of the European post-war period
  • Provides an exciting new reading of the role of social movements in revolutionary processes that goes beyond traditional emphasis on class to encompass citizenship, values and strategies
  • Challenges long-established views of civil society in Southern Europe as weak, and invites us to rethink the history of democratisation in that region in ways that include popular agency and involvement
  • Goes beyond most studies of democratisation in using historical research to uncover the historical processes of change that made the transition possible
