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.

Freedom Fighters is now, and will remain for a long time, a necessary book to any who look to do new research on the subject. - Miguel Serras Pereira, Público, Lisbon

A coherent and solid work on Portuguese anarchism. - Alfredo Margarido, Anais, Lisbon

Freedom Fighters fills a large gap in the history and sociology of Portugal. Much of the analysis and documentation presented in this important work will help the contemporary reader to understand Portugal today.
