An Intimate Portrait by

The Premier of Portugal is perhaps the least publicized leader of any Western nation today. Even in his own country, he is seldom heard of seen. And yet his influence is everywhere, and he has remained in office for over twenty years.

A young French writer, Christine Gamier, visited Portugal in an attempt to find the facts of the case, and eventually was invited to remain there for some time. Her subject is important not only for Portugal, but for the whole Atlantic community—in 1944 Salazar, in one of his rare speeches, had predicted the postwar necessity of an Atlantic alliance. He believes in giving his country government with a minimum of political turmoil. Is it a great calm which Salazar has brought to his people in troubled times, or is it a great sleep? Christine Gamier asks Salazar this question, among many others, and gives his reasoned answers in his own words. This is an informative book for all who wish to learn about Salazar the statesman and Salazar the man of the people, and for all who wonder about Portugal in the world today.
