The United Nations and Portugal: A Study of Anti-Colonialism

Excerpt

The topicality and the national interest of the problems dealt with explain why the first edition of this study is now out of print. Since the problems remain and, indeed, have lost none of their importance, a second edition is now published.

The text has been revised but little has been altered, because, in their essentials, the questions have not changed. However, references to the latest developments, and the conclusions they impose, have been added. In particular, there has been inserted an exposition of the new principles evolved by certain members of the United Nations, which that organization has accepted as providing justification for the Indian attack on Goa, and which, if given universal validity, must cause a profound disturbance in international life vastly transcending the purely Portuguese aspect.

In addition, it has been considered useful to insert some factual data or texts arising from the recent decisions in the Assembly. For the rest, and save for a few points of detail, the general structure of the first edition has been retained.

May 1962 F. N.
