The year 2018 marks the 44th year anniversary of the Carnation Revolution of 1974, which re-established democracy in the country. This special volume seeks to reflect on how far Portugal has come since 1974, in order to better understand where it is headed at the dawn of the twenty-first century. A primary goal of this volume is to examine the impact of the revolutionary democratization process on Portugal from an economic, social, institutional, and cultural standpoint. The volume will offer an up-to-date assessment of political and economic issues in Portugal. It will be essential reading for those who want to understand contemporary Portugal.
