Abstract

The case of Portuguese colonialism is unique in the world today. While other Western colonial powers have reluctantly but rationally conceded the right to political independence to their colonies, Portugal clings to the largest remaining empire in the world and endeavors to consolidate political unity among all parts of the empire under the domination of its metropolitan center in Europe.
