“The Regional Press of Lafões during the First Republic (1910-1926)” results from research conducted by Norberto Gomes da Costa at regional and national newspaper libraries in order to show how was perceived in a rural region a period of the Portuguese history that forever changed the political and social context of the country: the change from a monarchy to a republican regime.
The idea for the book was risen from the desire to give thematic continuity to a volume published in 2012, “Lafões: Press and History (1895-1910)”, which, like the present volume, was the result of a series of articles published by the biweekly Gazeta da Beira. While “Lafões: Press and History (1895-1910)” addressed the way how were lived and thought in Lafões (a portuguese sub-region comprised of three municipalities: São Pedro do Sul, Vouzela and Oliveira de Frades) the troubled period that led to the establishment of a Republic on October 5th, 1910, this present volume covers the no less troubled years that followed and which commonly are designated by First Republic, a period that goes from 1910 to the dawn of the New State (fascist regime) in 1926.
