The Interviews of Salazar 1928-1969

The Interviews of Salazar 1928-1969

This project aims at collecting the still untranslated and/or uncollected interviews of Salazar with Portuguese and foreign journalists given during his permanence in power, firstly as Finance Minister (1928-1932), then as Prime Minister (1932-1968), including his last one in 1969, shortly before his death. The aim is to publish a Portuguese language edition of the complete collected interviews of Salazar, or, as an alternative first step, a collection of scattered interviews never before published in book form, including some never translated before, with an introductory essay. The speeches from Salazar and some official statements ("notas oficiosas") issued by his government were collected and published during his long stay in power, but only 14 collected interviews from 1960-1966, all of them with foreign journalists, were published (1967). Before this project was submitted, I managed to obtain the text of several French language interviews virtually unknown to historians and to the public.

Objectivos: 
<p>This project aims at collecting the interviews of Salazar with Portuguese and foreign journalists given during his permanence in power, firstly as Finance Minister (1928-1932), then as Prime Minister (1932-1968), until his last one in 1969, shortly before his death. <br /><br />His interviews were published mostly in their original edition only. They were seldom republished elsewhere or in book form. Also, only a minor part of the interviews or excerpts of interviews with foreign journalists were translated into Portuguese. A selection of Salazar's interviews from 1960-1966 with foreign journalists was published in 1967, but leaving aside several interesting interviews from that period too. The interviews of Salazar with António Ferro have recently been published (2007). <br /><br />This project intends to gather and possibly publish a Portuguese language edition of the complete or selected interviews of Salazar, including several never translated before, with an introductory essay and footnotes.</p>
