Abstract

Portugal has the largest empire remaining in Africa. Portugal's history there dates to the Columbian period, and its government boasts that a colonial philosophy different from the other colonial powers in Africa is at work. The Portuguese speak of a "civilizing mission," "cultural assimilation," and the "Lusitanization of its colonies. The determination of Portugal to see its policies through and the determination of Angolan nationalists to exact independence and freedom from the Portuguese warrant an investigation of the current revolution and the basis of Angolan nationalism.
