9780719085444: Lisbon rising: Urban social movements in the Portuguese Revolution, 1974-75

Lisbon rising explores the role of a widespread urban social movement in Portugal's revolution and transition to democracy.

The emergence of a grassroots movement of the urban held the promise that the revolution would deliver a truly popular and socialist democracy. Many thousands participated in democratic neighbourhood assemblies deciding the fate of the city, built houses, schools and hospitals, and occupied thousands of apartments. Yet, while the movement remains to this day a symbol of the possibilities of grassroots democracy, little is known about how it appeared, what role it played in the Carnation Revolution, and why it disappeared after 1975. Drawing on newly available sources, Lisbon rising challenges long-established views of civil society in southern Europe as weak, arguing that popular movements had an important and autonomous role democratisation, inviting us to rethink role of popular agency in the history and theory of transitions.

Lisbon rising will be of interest students and scholars of twentieth-century European history, as well as of democratisation, social movements and citizenship in political science and sociology.

Book Description MANCHESTER UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2013. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Lisbon rising explores the role of a widespread urban social movement in the revolutionary process that accompanied Portugal s transition from authoritarianism to democracy. It is the first in-depth study of the widest urban movement of the European post-war period, an event that shook the balance of Cold War politics by threatening the possibility of revolution in Western Europe. Using hitherto unknown sources produced by movement organisations themselves, it challenges long-established views of civil society in Southern Europe as weak, arguing that popular movements had an important and autonomous role in the process that led to democratisation, inviting us to rethink the history and theories of transitions in the region in ways that account for popular agency. Lisbon rising will be of interest not only to students of twentieth-century European history, but across disciplines to students of democratisation, social movements and citizenship in political science and sociology. -- .
