Reviews

“This is an extremely well-conceived, well-edited volume, shedding salutary light on a whole range of subjects related to diaspora and migration. It will be of great interest to those working on history, cultural studies, and politics.” (Gabriel Paquette, Luso-Brazilian Review, Vol. 52 (2), December, 2015)

"The role of the empire in building the grandeur of the Portuguese destiny has, as Imperial Migrations shows so excellently, obscured the multiple agencies involved in imperial constructions. Decentring empires involves acknowledging diasporas, and in so doing acknowledging the multiplicities inherent in the project of modernity, both in the past and in the present." - Toby Green, Africa, 84(4)

"This book provides a wide panorama [...] aim in 330 pages of the migrations within the spaces colonized by Portugal

and/or those of the people subjected to Portuguese colonization. [...] it allows us to draw interesting comparisons with

other imperial situations. Thus it contributes, by including the spaces colonized by Portugal, to current debates within the field of imperial studies, connected history, and global history." - Victor Pereira, African Affairs, 144(456)
