Portugal by Charles F. Gritzner, Douglas A. Phillips


Portugal by Charles F. Gritzner, Douglas A. Phillips

Portugal is located on the west coast of the Iberian Peninsula and shares its border with Spain. Much like Spain, Portugal was a powerful seafaring nation in the 15th and 16th centuries and established several overseas colonies, including Brazil. Today, Portugal has an industrialized economy, made up primarily of light industry, and is a member of the European Union. A full-color overview of a fascinating nation, Portugal is an accessible guide to students who want to learn more about this country's culture, geography, and economy.
