Gérmen e Cultura


THE author would be the last person to claim that this volume contained new and important information. His aim has been rather to sit back and survey a number of problems and to give us his ideas generally: the articles included are, as it were, conversation pieces, some being on subjects of universal interest, others on matters of more particular importance to the Portuguese themselves and to their offspring in the New World. Such a series of conversation pieces, when composed by a scholar and humanist like the Director of the Institute of Anthropology of the University of Oporto, are always worth reading, and they will be found to be a useful antidote to the procession of single-track ideas generated by the overpowering pressure of the War. Portugal, it must always be remembered, is one of the few countries of Europe that has remained at peace.
