2 - 4 weeks availability
Iberian Worlds is an imaginative, short text that dramatically depicts important globalization themes and processes through the important flows and impacts Spain and Portugal have had with many important regions of the world for many centuries. Spain and Portugal have long histories at the cutting-edge of world relations, managing far-flung empires, and author Gary McDonogh stresses this historical perspective as well as foregrounding the vast present world fostered by the "Iberian project" - Latin America, Southern Europe, parts of Asia and Africa, in which Spain and Portugal possess enormous power.
Gary W. McDonogh has devoted more than three decades to anthropological studies of Iberian cities and peoples in Europe, Asia and the Americas. He is currently Professor and Director of the Program in Growth and Structure of Cities at Bryn Mawr College and coordinator of the concentration in Latino, Latin American and Iberian Peoples and Cultures.
