A History of Postcolonial Lusophone Africa (Non-Fiction)

Indiana University Press (May 23, 2002)

Hardback USD$49.95/Paperback USD$10.95

Although the five Portuguese-speaking countries in Africa that gained independence in 1974/75—Angola, Mozambique, Guinea-Bissau, Cape Verde, and São Tomé e Príncipe—differ from each other in many ways, they share a history of Portuguese rule going back to the 15th century, which has left a mark to this day. Patrick Chabal and his co-authors assess the nature of the Portuguese legacy, using a twofold approach. In Part I the book examines what the five countries have in common and how they differ from the rest of Africa. In Part II, the chapters, each devoted to a specific country, survey the histories of those countries since independence.
