L'Art de la guerre

Traduit par Toussaint Guiraudet

L'Art de los angeles guerre, publié en 1521, occupe une position singulière dans l'oeuvre de Machiavel. Présenté sous l. a. forme d'un discussion, l'ouvrage surprend par son esprit peu machiavélique. Les considérations tactiques y côtoient les propos consacrés aux nécessités matérielles de l. a. guerre (recrutement, armement. .. ), orchestrant avec subtilité une réflexion sur le pouvoir. Quelles limites l. a. politique impose-t-elle à l'art de los angeles guerre ? remark définir l'autorité ? Ce sont là quelques-unes des questions soulevées par Machiavel qui puise ici ses modèles chez les Anciens. En grand stratège, il omet parfois de répondre. Mais los angeles guerre est une affaire si sérieuse qu'il faut peut-être savoir l. a. manier avec ironie.

Example text

Mocumbi (FRELIMO), and E. Rocha (MPLA). Neo-colonialism is undoubtedly the main obstacle to be overcome by the African masses, if they are to fulfil their aspirations of complete independence. * The imperialist powers (Great Britain, France, Germany and the USA) share among each other the continued economic control over this country. Because of this, Portugal could not shield itself from the impact of the offensive of the financial circles of the neo-capitalist states, West Germany and France in particular, nor was it able to ignore the changes occurring in Europe and Africa.

Our people's situation was such, prior to the beginning of the fight, our political experience so slight, that it would have been difficult for us to pose the question of this fight on the basis of one directly aimed against colonialism and imperialism. We were forced to conduct our people's mobili zation and organization for the struggle, at first, on the basis of concrete everyday problems of their life, moving later to larger concepts, to generalized views of colonialism and imperialism. Today people understand very well what is meant by colonialism, and Portuguese colonialism in particular, and are beginning to develop in their minds a clear notion of the phenomenon of imperialism.

This by no means meant that the colonies were disregarded; on the contrary, the idea of Portugal as an imperial power and the closer integration of the colonies and the metropole was a pillar of Salazar's theory of the New State. Portuguese colonial policy has been defined by one writer as falling into three distinct phases: the period of discoveries, the period of pacification and 'the period of exaggerated misconceptions of Portuguese colonial destiny as manifested since 1926'. The New State, incorporated in the 1930 Colonial Act and the 1933 Organic Law centralised administration (thereby countering the early twenties trend towards administrative and political autonomy) and by presenting a united imperial front showed the world that Portugal was still a force to be reckoned with.
