Seaports in the First Global Age
Portuguese Agents, Networks and Interactions (1500-1800)
edited by Amelia Polónia, Cátia Antunes.
This book intends to underline the importance of the changes some ports, marked by the Portuguese presence, went through because of the connections promoted by a world-wide transformative exchange.
It brings to the fore a multi-focal approach designed to underline phenomena that derive from morphological and environmental aspects, to economic dynamics, social transformations, cultural and religious practices.
