Abstract

The long-lived General José Norton de Matos (1867-1955) had his greatest success in the colonial issue, besides the ‘Miracle of Tancos’ and him running for President, in 1949. Indeed, his commission in India, where he was in charge of Land Surveying, his participation in the mission responsible for establishing the borders of Macao, and the offices of Governor-General and High Commissioner, in Angola, marked many years of activity overseas, after which he wrote doctrinal books and collaborated in newspapers and magazines. The aim of this study is to follow the colonial thinking of Norton de Matos, in order to integrate it into his time. Having dealt with the overseas issue during three political regimes, we shall assess his colonial thinking based on the main thrust of the Constitutional Monarchy, First Republic, and the dictatorial regime of Estado Novo. Therefore, it is important to establish the contact points between the three regimes and explain the ideas that permeated his views.

Abstract

Born in 1883 – the same year that ‘Thus Spoke Zarathustra’ was published and German composer, Richard Wagner, passed away –, journalist and diplomat, Augusto de Castro, would come across ‘delightful ironies’ in life, as he claimed later on. Thus, while Zarathustra belonged to one of Benito Mussolini’s favourite authors – an Italian dictator, also born in 1883, openly admired by Castro throughout the first decades of the 20th century –, the disappearance of Parsifal’s creator set the theme for one of the most nostalgic articles written by Augusto de Castro, which provided the title to his second-last work, ‘Eighty-three years ago in Venice’ (1966). This book suggests a journey through the life and works of Augusto de Castro, a larger-than-life character of 20th-century diplomacy, politics, and culture, who closely followed the main changes that took place in this country, and communed with the main political, economic, and cultural actors of the national and international scene of the time.
