Written with the beginning student in mind but extensive enough to appeal to the scholar, the Dictionary dutifully selects from the wealth of information available on Portugal and presents it in a single straightforward volume." "The omission of Portuguese studies from North American colleges, universities, and libraries makes it all the more important that a work such as this is now available. It provides comprehensive, up-to-date reference material on everything from Portugal's political crisis to its economic and societal challenges, trials, and triumphs. This volume includes an introduction, maps, a chronology, list of acronyms, several appendices, and an expansive classified bibliography, all of which add to its value. In addition, this second edition has been updated with nine new bibliographical sections, including one on electronic and Web resources. The dictionary entries are full, providing a wide scope of information, and are extensively cross-referenced. Updated entries include soccer (futebol), the economy, education, health, the Portuguese Communist Party, and many more."--BOOK JACKET." ;
