The Portuguese: The Land and Its People

First published in 1991, this lively travel companion is brought up-to-date here in a new revised edition with additional chapters. The Portuguese: The Land and its People contains a fascinating guide to Portugal's rich and turbulent history: one of Romans and Moors, of the age of exploration, of exotic kings and queens, and of the revolution of 1974. The book features maps, illustrations and photographs, a detailed chronology and an invaluable, fully up-dated chapter of practical travel advice for visitors to Portugal.
