If the overwhelming majority of foreign observers were surprised but encouraged by the coup of 25 April 1974 which signaled an end to the Salazar· Caetano regime, the responses to developments since that time have been mixed. In part this ambivalence can be attributed to the developments them• selves which are both difficult to comprehend and almost impossible to place in a fixed context. Indeed, there is no fixed context.
