This is the story of the first and one of the greatest colonial
empires: its birth, apotheosis, and decline. By approaching the
history of the Portuguese empire thematically, A. J. R.
Russell-Wood is able to pursue ideas and make connections that
previously have been constrained by strict chronological
approaches. Using the study of movement as a focus, Russell-Wood
gains unique insight into the diversity, breadth, and balance
between the competing interests and priorities that characterized
the Portuguese culture and its expansion spanning four centuries'
events on four different continents.
