Nach dem Bestseller ›Schiffbruch mit Tiger‹ jetzt der neue große Roman von Yann Martel: ›Die Hohen Berge Portugals‹ ist ein Meisterwerk voller Weisheit und Witz. Lissabon, Anfang des 20. Jahrhunderts: In einem sogenannten Automobil begibt sich der junge Tomás auf eine abenteuerliche Expedition in die Hohen Berge Portugals. Ein tragikomischer Roadtrip beginnt - der ein unvorhergesehenes Ende nehmen soll. Doch das ist erst der Anfang einer phantastischen Geschichte, die die einsame Gegend noch Jahrzehnte später umweht wie ein tragischer Zauber. In seinem neuen großen Roman verknüpft Yann Martel verschiedene Fäden eindrucksvoll zu einem literarischen Wunder: ein unglaubliches und doch absolut glaubhaftes Meisterwerk über das Leben, den Tod und die Liebe – voller Weisheit und Witz.

Past studies of medieval Portugal have focused on such specific themes as political or administrative history and voyages of discovery. Oliveira Marques, however, has captured the vast spectrum of Portuguese daily life from the twelfth through the fifteenth centuries The whole of medieval society is depicted, both on a national scale and, more important, society as it affected the individual in his everyday activities. Oliveira Marques gives us an engaging and original social history which examines customary meals, dress, homes, work, spiritual life, even ideas about courtship and love. Medieval Portuguese culture and education, amusements and funeral customs are all a part of this portrait.

The Efficiency of Education Expenditure in Portugal

This paper assesses the efficiency of education expenditure in Portugal and delineates a possible agenda for reform. Portugal’s low educational performance has coincided with the highest level of primary and secondary education expenditure to GDP in the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), suggesting considerable inefficiency. Empirical results from the application of a nonparametric technique for production frontier estimation (Free Disposable Hull analysis) support this view. Among the reforms that could be considered to raise educational efficiency are the adoption of a goal-oriented management and incentive system; establishment of minimum student/teacher ratios; and an easing of employment and work rules governing public school teachers.

The first book in English or Portuguese to devote itself to the political parties of Portugal, Thomas Bruneau’s comprehensive book investigates the role of these parties in the emergence and consolidation of the country’s new democratic system.After the coup of April 25, 1974, political parties quickly emerged as the key political force in Portugal and played a critical role in steering a course through the revolutionary climate toward democracy. Since that time, they have remained the leading actors not only in politics but in economics and the overall shaping of Portuguese society, guiding the development of the democratic process. Besides providing an intimate look at political groups in Portuguese society, this book illuminates the Portuguese example as a source of comparison with other “new democracies” and, on a larger scale, with the political party systems of Western Europe.
