From reviews of the cloth edition:
"Valuable reading for all students of Portuguese history and politics, both for the questions it answers and the issues it raises."
—Marina Costa Lobo, St. Antony's College, Oxford
"It is quite simply the best introduction to modern Portugal currently available in the English language . . . and its arguments are provocative. Scholars and libraries will absolutely want to have this book in their collections."
—Michael Baum, University of Massachusetts Dartmouth
"This is a superior work, providing one of the very best and most comprehensive overviews available on modern Portugal. . . . Professor Costa Pinto's striking achievement . . . is to have brought together a group of stellar Portuguese scholars to explain Portugal not only to themselves but to the rest of us. The result is a benchmark in contemporary Portuguese studies in every way."
—Kenneth Maxwell, Council on Foreign Relations
"The authors enjoy the space to make their subjects clear to the outsider while developing interpretations that will engage old friends of Portugal. . . . SPOSS is to be congratulated on this addition to its nations of modern Europe series."
—Richard Herr, University of California, Berkeley
