About the Authors
  • Esta historia concisa e ilustrada de Portugal ofrece una introducción a la cultura y a la gente del país, a sus tres imperios en Ásia, América y África, y a su búsqueda en Europa de una modernización económica, de una estabilidad política y de un consorcio internacional. Tras una breve introducción a los 2000 años de historia portuguesa anteriores a la restauración de 1640, el libro estudia los efectos de la inmensa riqueza procedente de las minas de Brasil, del crecimiento del comercio del vino y de la evolución de los estrechos lazos que la unieron con Inglaterra, la 'más antigua aliada' de Portugal. La revolución de 1820 a 1851 creó una monarquía liberal, pero en 1910 el rey fue derrocado y en 1926 fue sustituido por una dictadura que trató de acabar con la pobreza de Portugal construyendo un nuevo imperio en África. En 1974 el imperio del sur parecía menos atractivo que el norte industrial , y en 1986 Portugal dio un cambio de rumbo para convertirse en miembro democrático de la Comunidad Europea.

    • Ideal introduction for anyone wanting a comprehensive survey of how Portugal came to be the country it is today
    • The only single-volume history of Portugal to be written in the last twenty years
    • Examines the changes that have led Portugal from political dictatorship to EC membership
