The Dutch seaborne empire, 1600-1800 by C. R Boxer( Book )

97 editions published between 1959 and 2018 in 5 languages and held by 1,873 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How did two low-lying and relatively uninviting provinces on the North Sea join to become the principal seafaring nation of the world within a single generation? Why was this spectacular rise, accompanied by an equally impressive flourishing of the arts and sciences in the Dutch "Golden Age" of the seventeenth century, succeeded by a loss of dynamism and impetus in the "Periwig Period" of the eighteenth century? Here is a vivid picture of the rise and fall of a remarkable society. Boxer investigates such themes as the attitudes of the ruling class and the working class to each other and to Dutch expansion overseas; who emigrated to the East and West Indies, and why and how; the commercial monopolies of the chartered India Companies; the daily life of Dutch merchants and mariners in the tropics; South Africa as a colony sui generis; and the true nature of the decline into the stagnant "Periwig Period."--Adapted from dust jacket

When Brazil's 'golden age' began, the Portuguese were securely established on the coast and immediate hinterland. European rivals - Spanish, French, Dutch - had been repelled, and expansion into the vast interior had begun. By the end of the 'golden age', bandleirantes, missionaries, miners, planters and ranchers had penetrated deep into the continent. In 1750, by the Treaty of Madrid, Spain recognized Brazil's new frontiers. The colony had come to occupy an area slightly greater than that of the ten Spanish colonies in South America put together. Despite conflicts, the fusion of Portuguese, Amerindian and African into a Brazilian entity had begun; and the explosive expansion of Brazil had laid the foundation for the independence that followed in 1822. Professor Boxer deals not only with the turbulent events of the 'golden age' but analyses the economic and administrative changes of the period. He examines the relationships of officials with colonists, of settlers with Indians, of colony with mother country. Professor Boxer's classic study of a critical period in the growth of Brazil (the world's fifth largest country) has long been out of print. It is here reissued with numerous illustrations

The Church Militant and Iberian expansion, 1440-1770 by C. R Boxer( Book )

17 editions published between 1978 and 2011 in English and Portuguese and held by 769 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The distinguished historian C.R. Boxer devoted years fo research and reflection on European expansion overseas into the Americas and Asia. In this analytical survey of the role of the Portuguese and Spanish missionaries of the Roman Catholic Church in the overseas expansion of the Iberian powers, he finds that the lasting results vary enormously. "They range," he writes, "from enduring mass conversions in some regions, of which sixteenth-century New Spain is the prime example, to the total failure in other countries, such as Cambodia, where the number of indigenous converts could be counted on two hands." Considering the church as "a human as well as a divine institution," the author focuses on four types of organizational problems: relations between the regular and the secular clergy; the mission as a frontier institution in many climes and many cultures; the close and inseparable connection between Cross and Crown; and the role of the Inquisition overseas. Boxer finds that "the mere survival of these Christian minorities through the vicissitudes of over three centuries is a tribute to the work of the dedicated missionaries of the Church Militant in times past."
