Good - though a bit dry at times

These books definitely provide readers with a good background to Portuguese history. I read both books with a specific interest in 2 areas of Portuguese history: the establishment of Portugal's overseas empire, and Portugal's experience under the government of Antonio Salazar. Professor Marques provides a thorough discussion of both topics, along with other key eras of the nation's history. He uses a lot of statistics in many areas of the books, to the point where they take away from an otherwise interesting narrative. The books are a little dated, as they were written in 1973, and so many pivotal changes have taken place within Portugal since then. Overall, I would recommend this book as a way to get a basic knowledge of Portuguese history.
