Very short, easy to read, concise history of an area I wanted to know more about as I knew nothing about this time period. It has to do with the Portuguese exploration that led to the discovery of America among other things. Loved it.

Clear, concise, and wonderfully written. Anyone visiting Macao can get up to speed historically in just a few hours with this book. A moving tribute to the Macanese and Portuguese.
