Portugal and the End of Ultra-Colonialism 2

A preliminary remark on method should be made. The account which follows does not attempt to give an exhaustive description of the whole Portuguese colonial system. The method chosen is rather to select various key sectors which appear to be privileged expressions of the whole, and to show their rigorous coherence. An initial criterion guided the selection of the areas examined: they are those where a marked differential is evident between the Portuguese example and the normal colonial pattern. It is through the specific characteristics of Portuguese colonialism that a model of the whole will be suggested.
