Portuguese Colonial Africa

Holdings are strong on Southern Africa, including the former Portuguese colonies of Angola and Mozambique. In particular, the collections contain material dealing with the colonial period, especially economic policy, and the national liberation movements. Guinea-Bissau (Portuguese Guinea) is also well documented.
