People’s Republic of Mozambique

  • Thomas H. Henriksen


Mozambique is one of the most recent countries to adopt a Marxist form of government. Mozambican Marxism represents the culmination of a ten-year war of independence (1964–74) waged against Portuguese colonialism by the Front for the Liberation of Mozambique (Frelimo). Its victory severed a 400-year political connection with Portugal.
