Salvador de Sá and the Struggle for Brazil and Angola 1602-1686 Saldo dos Comentários ao Livro/Vendedor: Neutro

C. R. Boxer
The Athlone Press
The earlier history of the Portuguese in Brazil rivals in interest that of the Spaniards in Mexico and Peru, yet it has attracted far less attention from English historians.
In the form of a life of Salvador Correia de Sá, one of the greatest of Portuguese colonial administrators, whose long career nearly spanned the seventeenth century, Professor Charles R. Boxer here presents a general narration of the stages by which Portugal established her domination of Brazil, and fought off the challenge of the Dutch for control of the slave and sugar trades, and pushed her colonial frontier westward into the central wilderness of the South American continent.
Fully documented, and embodying much original research, this book makes an important addition to the resources of the professional historian and offers the general reader a vigorous account of an exciting and unfamiliar side of 17th century history.
