Vient de paraître The ’Civilising Mission’ of Portuguese Colonialism, 1870-1930 de Miguel Bandeira Jerónimo chez Palgrave Macmillan, "Cambridge Imperial and Post-Colonial Studies Series", 2015, 280 p. ISBN : 9781137355904 Prix : 60 £ (existe aussi en version électronique).

"This book provides an historical critical analysis of the doctrine of the ’civilising mission’ in Portuguese colonialism in the crucial period from 1870 to 1930. Exploring international contexts and transnational connections, imperial politics and colonial policies, this ’civilising mission’ is analysed and assessed by examining the contentious debates about the recruitment, employment and distribution of African manpower, namely over the persistence of slavery, the emergence and legalisation of ’conditions analogous to slavery’, and of other modalities of compulsory labour.
