A Nation upon the Ocean Sea

Portugal's Atlantic Diaspora and the Crisis of the Spanish Empire, 1492-1640

Daviken Studnicki-Gizbert

  • A reconstruction of the early modern Atlantic world through the study of a diasporic trading community called the Portuguese nation
  • Links early modern Europe with the Iberian New World
  • Uses rich and extensive personal documentation to bring a personal narrative quality to the analysis
  • Broadens our understanding of the term nation to include communities that, unlike nation-states, were not fixed to a particular territory
