"Lively, brilliantly documented and filled with the voices of Portugal's ordinary people, Raquel Varela's book recovers the revolution from below that shook Portugal in 1974-5, a 'democratic transition' that revealed another world is possible. This book deserves the widest circulation."

--Colin Barker, author of Festival of the Oppressed: solidarity, reform and revolution in Poland, 1980-81
