Reviews

Praise for the previous edition: ‘Meneses’ book is [...] a courageous effort and a successful one. The book, as the author acknowledges, reflects the remarkable development, since the 1990s, of the historiography on Salazar’s regime’. Luís Nuno Rodrigues, Luso-Brazilian Review, June 2013 ‘What distinguishes this academic biography from the other non-academic biographies of the dictator already in existence? Seriousness and rigour. The author carried out a deep dive in the archives, especially Salazar’s, and read and used a great many of the works already published on the New State’. Victor Pereira, Público, 27 August 2010 ‘Filipe Ribeiro de Meneses’ monumental biography of Salazar fills a vacuum [...] it is the first complete and dispassionate work on the man who governed Portugal for nearly forty years’. António-Pedro Vasconcelos, Sol, 17 September 2010 ‘This biography […] fills a gap in Portuguese historiography and becomes straight away a work of reference, as future years will inevitably confirm’. Pedro Correia, Ler, 1 November 2010
