"In this volume, Walther L. Bernecker, Professor of International Studies at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, and Horst Pietschmann, emeritus professor of Latin American History at the University of Hamburg, provide a complete overview of the History of the country from the late Middle Ages to the present. The first part is about the emergence of Portugal until the Napoleonic occupation of the country in 1807 and the flight of the royal family to Brazil. A specific chapter is dedicated to the non-European expansion of Portugal. The second part focus on the performance of the internal political development of the country and its structural problems that formed the backdrop to the "Carnation Revolution", in 1974, as well as on the democratization and Europeanisation of the country."
