By Mario Azevedo

A Portuguese colony considering 1498, Mozambique turned self reliant on June 25, 1975, following a ten-year struggle of liberation. the recent kingdom remained rather imprecise for many students, and Azevedo's paintings fills a vacuum within the resources, tracing the advance of recent Mozambique from earliest occasions to the current and treating the Africans no longer as passive receptors yet as actors of their land in the course of either the pre-colonial and the colonial sessions. Such themes as African resistance to colonialism, fiscal stipulations, the Portuguese coverage of assimilation, FRELIMO, RENAMO, compelled exertions, and family members with South Africa are generally lined via the writer, a Mozambican, with insights that just one who lived less than Portuguese colonialism supplies.
