We support freedom of speech, freedom of thought, freedom of expression, and freedom of opinionfreedom of religion and of deep-seated private conscience (for ALL religions) freedom of informed awareness (i.e. freedom of 'world-view' -- please note that we define 'informed awareness' as a hard-wired, fiercely defended core immunity from ideological 'content modification' or 'perceptual hashing') freedom of the press (in all paper, digital or future quantum and other advanced formats yet to be invented) uncensored public and general access to and honest scrutiny of all official records and information an unrestricted circulation of raw research data, not warped by political and ideological filters and 'hashing' mandates if you have issues with the above -- and if you prefer (i) censorship, (ii) repression, (iii) secrecy, (iv) pervasive politicized surveillance, (v) crude socio-economic coercion, (vi) officially mandated and 'justice'-enforced uniformity of thought and of all scholarly work (i.e. "compelling ... followers how to think, what to do, how to evaluate events, what to dream, and what language to use [an agenda-driven systematic manipulation of the meanings of terms] ..." [Ryszard Legutko, The Demon in Democracy: Totalitarian Temptations in Free Societies (2016)], (vii) cynical and engineered simulacra of so-called expert consensus (as opposed to examinable data), (viii) an utter lack of transparency that only shields the income of career administrators and bureau(c)rats, (ix) 24-7-365 institutional lying, (x) proverbial office, corporate, and government obfuscation, and (xi) incessant ideological 'purity' checks -- we regretfully cannot concur we of course fully respect your position -- even if your allegiances bar you from respecting ours because of complex social, career, networking, and Human Resources compliance issues for clarification, if needed, please read the statement of our principles >>

Shipping: COVID19 Residual Limitations

Publishing Program, 2021-2022

For our past and future volumes, please visit our Forthcoming and Recent webpages. A new monographic series of Edited Volumes has been successfully launched (see announcement below -- the initial volumes include, among other, Rivers and Shores: 'Fluviality' and the Occupation of Colonial Amazonia, edited and curated by Rafael Chambouleyron and Luís Costa e Sousa (released very recently). An edited volume of reflections centered on Ceuta and Northern Morocco, 1415-2015, and a volume of studies on Minas Gerais are now available (see below). Titles are being added to the already established PSR Monographs series. Paul Christopher Manuel's new monograph, Voices of the Revolution: Revisiting the Portuguese Revolution of 25 April 1974 -- Interviews and Insights, with interview texts in mirror Portuguese and English versions, was released on 30-31 December 2019, before the full-blown COVID-19 crisis (see below). The roster of publications in progress includes new core translations into English of selected classic Portuguese sources of enduring cultural and research significance (in particular a new critical English translation of the Esmeraldo de Situ Orbis and the first ever English translation of the Manuscrito de Valentim Fernandes, involving a rigorous comparison between the published Portuguese and other versions and the original of the Manuscrito de Valentim Fernandes preserved in the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek (Munich)). The Valentim Fernandes project will be fully ready later in 2021: (a) a full digital text of the transcription, newly derived from the manuscript and formatted to reflect the original accurately, (b) a full span of geospatially aware place name concordances (an analytical key), and (c) a digital atlas. The atlas is making good progress, as are the detailed analytical notes to the translation. More about our profle... >>

Paul Holberton Publishing 
The Global City: On the Streets of Renaissance Lisbon
, edited by Annemarie Jordan Gschwend and K. J. P. Lowe (Paul Holberton Publishing: London, 2015; ISBN 9781907372889; 240 pp.) draws us into the past sensory universe of a Lisbon pre-dating the sudden seismic shock of 1755. It does so from the starting point of two large-scale sixteenth-century vistas by an anonymous Flemish master that depict the Rua Nova dos Mercadores commercial and financial thoroughfare. Acquired in 1866 by Dante Gabriel Rossetti, the vistas contribute a unique spatio-temporal window into the past, at street level, bustling with the stark contradictions and contrasts of a global metropolis. The volume conjoins the two works of art with a wealth of data from newly found or suitably valorized archival documents, accompanied by a carefully selected display of little known or unpublished images of contemporary trade staples, curiosities, luxury and prestige items, naturalia, exotica, and other objects. A physical expression of the worldwide tangle of commerce, the Rua Nova as an architectural construct symbolically echoed the estuary of the river Tagus as a natural feature opening out to the Atlantic and to the oceans far beyond. The book Iets readers glimpse Lisbon and its material culture in all the vibrant cosmopolitanism characterizing this major trading hub of the Renaissance world, a hub whose essence and texture were to be forever altered by one of the planet's iconic natural cataclysms – an earthquake and a tsunami – on Saturday, 1 November 1755, the holiday of All Saints' Day.
