Synopsis

Query: 4° Congresso do Partido Frelimo | Frelimo 4th Party Congress

Estimado-a-s colegas,

Qualquer um que me diga quantas teses foram apresentadas no Quarto Congresso do Partido Frelimo (abril de 1983) ganhará a minha gratidão e uma libação de sua escolha sempre que nos cruzarmos. Aliás, conheço, mas não tenho, neste momento, acesso ao Projecto das teses para o 4° congresso do Partido Frelimo (Maputo, 1982).

Com esperançosos agradecimentos, antecipadamente.

Eric Allina, University of Ottawa (eallinap[at]uottawa.ca)
