Many map users have wondered why Portugal, sharing with Spain the Iberian Peninsula, ever became a separate nation. That question is answered with remarkable clarity by Dan Stanislawski. This book also presents an analysis of the factors that produce separate nations and offers a study of the evolution of national cultures generally, especially as they apply to Portugal.

Dan Stanislawski (1903–1997) was head of the Geography Department at the University of Arizona. He was deeply interested in unique cultures around the world, particularly in those of Spanish and Portuguese extraction. He traveled widely in Europe and in the Americas searching for reasons for the persistence of individuality in regional cultures, and he lived for extensive periods in Latin America and in Mediterranean areas.
