During the latter half of the twentieth century, the rivalry between the United States and the erstwhile Soviet Union, dubbed the Cold War, decisively shaped the global world order that emerged in the aftermath of WWII and the dismantling of the western European empires.
I am helping to put together a volume on Europe and the Arab Gulf, in cooperation with the Euro-Gulf Information Centre, Rome. I am looking for a chapter on Portugal and the Gulf in the 16th and 17th centuries. The chapter would be in English, would summarise the current state of knowledge and would make some use of primary sources.
If anyone is interested, please send me a short abstract (max half a page) along with a brief resume (1 page) to firstname.lastname@example.org by 1 August 2018.
Reminder: due June 8, 2018
