Fortifications, Post-colonialism and Power Ruins and Imperial Legacies

By critically examining Portuguese fortiifications across the former Lusophone empire, this book constructs a cultural and political geography that informs our understandings of the performance of the 'colonial present', it investigates how memory attaches itself to places and discusses how contemporary postcolonial states resolve the ambiguous public treatment of colonialism and the 'colonial present. This book also provides an understanding of the role of various imperial legacies in the construction of memory and identity and explores the intersection of colonialism, memory, power and space.
