  • Portugal: A Companion Historyby José Hermano Saraiva; Ian Robertson; Ursula Fons

    Carcanet 2012; US$ 14.99

    Professor Saraiva's multi-volume History of Portugal is a celebrated scholarly standard work.

His latest book, produced especially for Carcanet's Aspects of Portugal series, is a history... more...

  • Sex, Identity and Hermaphrodites in Iberia, 1500?1800by Francisco Vazquez Garcia

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 52.95

    Early modern European thought held that men and women were essentially the same.

This book traces this change in Iberia in comparison to the earlier shift in thought in northern Europe. more...

  • The Portuguese immigrant in Curaçaoby Charles do Rego

    Uitgeverij SWP 2013; US$ 19.99

    The rapid industrialization of Curaçao, based on oil refining, resulted in an urgent need for labor which the small community could not provide sufficiently. The Portuguese, mostly from Madeira, were among the immigrant laborers who came by the thousands from the 1920s until the 1950s. A small group managed to stay either at the refinery or in the... more...

  • Writing Galicia into the Worldby Kirsty Hooper

    Liverpool University Press 2011; US$ 73.99

    Writing Galicia explores a part of Europe's cultural and social landscape that has until now remained largely unmapped: the exciting body of creative work emerging since the 1970s from contact between the small Atlantic country of Galicia, in the far north-west of the Iberian peninsula, and the Anglophone world. Unlike the millions who participated... more...
