Summary
  • "Based on extensive archival research in Portugal, India, England, and France, this work provides the first monographic study of a crucial, yet hitherto ignored period in the history of Portugal's Asian empire: the years ca. 1640-1683. Ames' revisionist work demonstrates that, contrary to the traditional view of the inevitable decline and stagnation of the Estado da India after ca. 1640, these were years of innovative and dynamic reform which brought about the geo-political and economic stabilization of Portuguese Asia by 1683. The book details this fundamental shift in Crown policy toward Asia as initiated by Prince Regent Pedro of Braganza (1668-1702) and carried out most effectively by Viceroy Luis de Mendonca Furtado e Albuquerque."--Jacket
  • Dit boek is gebaseerd op uitgebreid onderzoek in archieven in Portugal, India, Engeland en Frankrijk en is de eerste monografische studie van een cruciale, maar totnogtoe weinig bestudeerde periode in de geschiedenis van Portugals Aziatische rijk: de jaren 1640-1683. Ames' revisionistische werk laat zien dat in tegenstelling tot het traditionele beeld van onvermijdelijk verval en stagnatie in het Estado da India na 1640, deze jaren een vernieuwende en dynamische hervorming laten zien die de geo-politieke en economische stabilisatie van Portugees Azië rond 1683 tot gevolg hadden. Glenn Ames gaat in op de details van deze fundamentele verandering in het koloniale beleid jegens Azië zoals dat werd geïnitieerd door prins Regent Pedro van Braganza (1668-1702) en later zeer effectief in praktijk werd gebracht door Viceroy Luis de Medonça Furtado e Albuquerque
