A critical account of the Portuguese revolution by the French Liaison Group for Workers' Action, translated and published in English in 1977 by the Social Revolution Hull group, arguing that rather than a workers' revolution it was a top-down modernisation of the capitalist economy.

Between two stools. Kinda funny.

I've not seen this one before. Look forward to glancing at it
Not alot of folks have paid the properattention to Portugal
In spite of all the issues which this pamphlet will probably draw out
There was some real mass movements. And some real action from below
As the title suggests, it was also a tidal wave of popular discontent contained and recouped
by many traditional parties and trade unions
