READ THE FULL REVIEW

The author paints a compelling picture and tells a story that has previously avoided an audience. The scale and challenges of Portuguese colonial development is just as important and interesting as the Spanish activities in the Americas and the later expansion of empire by the British. What is most useful is a tabular chronology at the beginning of the book.

A highly recommended book.
