Charles R. Boxer: An Uncommon Life: Soldier, Historian, Teacher, Collector, Traveler

A year after the death of the man considered to be the greatest historian of the Portuguese expansion abroad, the Orient Foundation printed Charles R. Boxer: An Uncommon Life. Professor Dauril Alden unveils the unusual personality of the historian, soldier, teacher, collector, and traveler who, from the 1930s to the 1980s, produced a unique body of work consisting of 355 books and articles, a library of rare books (printed and manuscripts) and hundreds of letters, the result of correspondence with researchers from around the world. Committed to making known the whole work of Boxer, the Orient Foundation began publishing them in Portuguese in 1989.
