Summary

"Five hundred years of Macau' introduces the reader to the amazing story of the small territory that was for several centuries the only gateway between China and Europe. It was occupied by the Portuguese from about 1557 until China resumed control in 1999. This book is liberally illustrated with maps and pictures most of which were collected by JoseĢ Maria Braga (Jack Braga) who lived and worked in Macau between 1924 and 1946. His family roots go back to 1704, when his ancestor, Manuel Vicente Rosa, arrived in Macau.
