CHOICE Review

The Portuguese-Speaking Diaspora describes the intercultural connections resulting from Portuguese voyages beginning under Henry the Navigator in the 15th century and continuing to the handover of Macau to China in 1999. Literature and the arts provide a view of cultural contacts from Brazil, Africa, and India to China and Japan. Sadlier (emer., Spanish and Portuguese, Indiana Univ., Bloomington) focuses on the interplay of culture, literature, and the arts in portraying the diverse spheres of Portuguese contacts. Much of the material, assembled here for the first time in English, is drawn from archives, literary texts, visual arts, material culture, and linguistic interchanges, including Jesuit letters, memoirs, poetry, fiction, iconography, art objects and architecture, and recent film depictions of the former colonial world. The author uses journals and films to document African resistance to colonization and independence and the diaspora of Luso-African and Luso-Asian populations, and she provides a critical analysis of Gilberto Freyre's theory of Lusotropicalism. Including thorough discussion of important literary works that engage travel and cultural difference, this is a valuable resource for anyone interested in diversity, history, and cultural studies. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through faculty. --Kenneth David Jackson, Yale University
