Book synopsis/description:

Francisco Luís Gomes died when 40, after spending three-fourths of his life in his homeland, Goa, and under a decade in Portugal and Europe. In that short span, he built a reputation for his work and his intellect. Yet his writing on economics and politics, as also his contributions in Parliament, face the risk today of being forgotten or turning inaccessible back home.

This book brings together his most important work, in an English translation. It also includes the full-text translation of the novel Os Brahamanes.

About the author:

Luís de Assis Correia is the author of the well-received Goa Through the Mists of History and Portuguese India: Mumbai-Chaul-Vasai 1498-1739. The first looks at the evolution of Goa from 10000 BCE to 1958 CE. The second takes a wide-angle look at the Portuguese 'Province of the North'.
