Lisbon's relative proximity to Africa led to a prolonged period of Moorish occupation until 1147. The city enjoyed untold wealth during the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries but was devastated by the earthquake in 1755. Portugal's accession to the European Community and Lisbon's subsequent choice both as the European City of Culture (1994) and as the site for the international Expo '98 have brought the city into the European mainstream.

Lisbon: city of the sea is a beautifully written portrait of a much loved city, from its origins in Greek legend to the present day. Malcolm Jack vividly captures the rich and unique history of this haunting and attractive port whose prominent position on the Tagus estuary has inextricablybound its character with the sea. Lisbon is a city of steep inclines and complicated, unsymmetrical streets that criss-cross the hills only in the Baixa area near the river and in the more modern, northern part of the city does any form of a grid system appear. It has enjoyed a political history that has directed Portugal’s focus more overseas than inland towards continental Europe, in part because of Spain’s geographical position. Thus the city has been stretched in one direction toward Brazil and in another toward the Cape of Good Hope and from there to Asia and the East. Beginning with its earliest inhabitants, Jack traces the city’s life through its imperial success in the sixteenth century and the devastating earthquake that humbled the city and shocked Europe in 1755 to its current position as a vibrant and successful European capital. Lisbon’s romantic atmosphere has captured the imaginations of foreigners through the ages._x000D_ Poets, writers and musicians have all drawn inspiration from different parts of Lisbon. This sensitive exploration of the city’s many aspects draws out its cosmopolitan nature, as well as its colourful culture and self-image and brings us closer to understanding its true spirit. Engaging and accessible, this book will appeal to Lisbon’s many visitors as well as anyone interested in European history._x000D_ _x000D_ ‘Malcolm Jack is a surefooted and erudite guide to the labyrinth of historical Lisbon. _x000D_ The city’s Moorish past, the age of discovery when Lisbon was the harbour from which the limits of the world were explored, the architectural splendours of the Manueline age, the desolation of the great earthquake of 1755, the Grand Tours of Beckford and Byron, the weird urban fantasies of Pessoa, the hauntingly nostalgic airs of fado _x000D_ - all are conjured up in this splendid book.’_x000D_ Robert Irwin, Historian, Arabist and novelist_x000D_ _x000D_ ‘A scholarly yet highly entertaining introduction to Lisbon. The author constantly draws on his extensive knowledge of contemporary travel literature but his main source of description and insight derives from his own, direct observation of all _x000D_ the nooks and crannies of old Lisbon and his unique ability to capture the spirit _x000D_ of the place. Recommended as essential reading for Lisbon lovers, prospective travellers, Lusophiles and others.’ _x000D_ Professor João Almeida Flor, University of Lisbon

Centered in the midst of the Columbiana County hills, Lisbon was founded in 1803. High hopes for growth and prosperity were first realized through industries producing iron, coal, and pottery; however, even with modern inventions, fascinating people, and hopes for a successful canal, the dream of becoming a city never materialized. During the Civil War, Confederate general John Hunt Morgan and his raiders threatened the community with invasion, but he ultimately surrendered to Union forces. Many political careers had links to Lisbon, including those of Congressman and Copperhead Clement Vallandigham, Sen. Marcus Hanna, Pres. William McKinley, and Associate Justice of the Supreme Court John Clarke. Intriguing families such as the “Fighting McCooks” added to the community’s history. Victorian homes abound, and today effort is put into the restoration of other Lisbon homes as well as businesses, creating genuine charm and interest while commercial and industrial progress stretches northward.

This report, from the European Union Committee (HLP 62-I, ISBN 9780104012420) is an impact assessment of the Treaty of Lisbon and seeks to inform the House of the most important aspects of the Treaty by comparing provisions with the status quo and assessing their impact on the institutions of the EU, Members States and on the UK. Divided into 12 chapters, with 7 appendices, the report covers the following areas, including: foundations of the European Union, where the Committee analyses the effects of the changes to the structure of EU treaties and the amendments made to the Union's values and objectives; the simplified treaty revision and how this can alter significantly the provisions on the face of all European Treaties; the impact of the Treaty on European institutions and what changes this will make to the European Council, including a full-time European Council President; the Lisbon Treaty gives the Charter of Fundamental Rights a legally binding status and whether the Charter's rights will create "new" rights in the UK and if the UK's existing labour and social legislation will be effected; the area of freedom, security and justice; how far does the Treaty change fundamental principles of foreign, defence and development policies; the impact of the Treaty on social affairs as well as finance and the internal markets; the impact on environment, agriculture and fisheries; also the new functions the Treaty gives national parliaments and the democratic challenge that poses; a summary of conclusions. The report does not seek to compare the Lisbon Treaty with the now abandoned Constitutional Treaty or the process by which the Lisbon Treaty was produced. Also the report does not address the question whether there should be a UK referendum on this Treaty. For the Committee, ratification of the Treaty is now a matter for Parliament.

Chief Warumbee sold Ten Miles Falls in 1678, and a century later, the first Lisbon settlement was established along the Androscoggin River. The water's mammoth power generated thousands of jobs and shaped a way of life for Lisbon's earliest citizens. Near beautiful cascading waterfalls, European immigrants found a magnificent place to share hard work, old-world customs, family traditions, and pride in their new home. Lisbon's history is as intricately woven as its fine Worumbo cloth. The town has suffered ravaging floods and fires, yet it has triumphed with the indomitable spirit of the community. In this volume, vivid photographs tell fascinating stories and carefully preserve the past for future generations.

1941. Klaus Felsen, forced out of his Berlin factory into the SS, arrives in a luminous Lisbon, where Nazis and Allies, refugees and entrepreneurs, dance to the strains of opportunism and despair. Felsen's assignment takes him to the bleak mountains of the north where a devious and brutal battle is being fought for an element vital to Hitler's bliztkrieg. There he meets the man who plants the first seed of greed and revenge that will grow into a thick vine in the landscape of post-war Portugal. Late 1990s. Investigating the murder of a young girl with a disturbing sexual past, Inspector Ze Coelho overturns the dark soil of history and unearths old bones from Portugal's fascist past. This small death in Lisbon is horrific compensation for an even older crime, and Coelho's stubborn pursuit of its truth reveals a tragedy that unites past and present. Robert Wilson's combination of intelligence, suspense, vivid characters, and mesmerizing storytelling richly deserves the international acclaim his novel has received.
