The Portuguese: The Land and Its People (Aspects of Portugal) Saldo dos Comentários ao Livro/Vendedor: Neutro

Marion Kaplan
Carcanet Press
The first edition of Marion Kaplan´s The Portuguese: The Land and its People was acclaimed by Portuguese readers, visitors to the country, and those eager to discover the rich history and dynamic present of a superficially familiar but still little-known nation of Europe. Now revised, with a fully updated travel advisory section, this lively portrait of Portugal is once more available.

Marion Kaplan´s empathy for Portugal combines with her journalistic skills to create a fascina
ting close-up of a great nation transforming itself into a modern European state. Her insights into the intricacies of family life and customs, the institutions of church and state, the social mix of rural communities and vibrant cities, make this an unrivalled introduction to Portugal and its people.

´In this book [Kaplan] informs, stimulates and opens eyes...This book will give guests a new regard, a new understanding and a new affection for the people and the place.´
The Portugal Post.  ´Sympathetic, perceptive, lively and full of information.´

Times Literary Supplement. ´Here is a book about Portugal and the Portuguese which succeeds in giving us a view, a kind one, without falling into the familiar trap of paternalism or banal anecdote. It is a work of merit, well written and researched...a dynamic portrait. The Portuguese could do well to read it!´
Clara Ferreira Alves.
