In contemporary societies, under conditions of a stable electoral calendar, the political struggle essentially takes the form of a struggle between parties. When a revolution gets underway, however, everything can be subverted, as millions of inactive or even disinterested people awaken to the social struggle.

This book presents us with a rigorous investigation of the Portuguese revolution that aims to give a voice to the voiceless. In history books, these people are often invisible. But it is the moving faces of these great masses of people that give meaning to those marvellous photographs of the Portuguese revolution. Anonymous, their portraits at the demonstrations tell us everything we need to know about hope and frustration, fury and fear, enthusiasm and illusion, and everything that makes life great and cannot be put into words. They were the ones who made the revolution. In the pages of this book beats a heart that has respect and admiration for these people!

Raquel Varela, historian, university lecturer and researcher, is the author of A História do PCP na Revolução dos Cravos (2011), among others. She has published or edited more than forty books.
