E-Book review:
Portugal had an important role in the exploration of the world, making the shortage of adequate English-language reference tools on the country a serious problem. Consequently, this historical dictionary is a significant addition to any library with collections on Europe. Wheeler (modern history, Univ. of New Hampshire, Durham) is one of the most active U.S. scholars promoting the study of Portugal in this country. His work is different from, and more usable than, the traditional historical dictionary because the entries are generally longer and of greater depth. In addition, their high quality shows the author's knowledge of his area. Wheeler includes an extensive subject introduction, a historical chronology, and a list of monarchs, presidents, and prime ministers. Of special note is the 100-page subject bibliography. An important reference source for academic and some public libraries.

Copyright 1993 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title. This third edition of a title in the Historical Dictionaries of Europe series covers Portuguese political, economic, cultural, and social history. The volume begins with physical and political maps of Portugal, a chronology from 15,000 BCE to 2008, and an introduction to and overview of Portuguese history. This material is followed by entries in alphabetical order and appendixes listing monarchs, prime ministers, and presidents. An extensive bibliography concludes the work. Though Portugal is one of the oldest nation-states in Europe, much of its history may be unfamiliar to North American readers. Some interesting facts: England and Portugal share the longest alliance in European history; Portugal was the last European country to use cavalry in combat; following the massive earthquake in 1755, Lisbon was rebuilt in grids and became the first planned city in Europe. Part of the value of a dictionary such as this is convenience; a great deal of information is presented in a single volume. A good purchase for academic and large public libraries. --Abbie Landry
