Os Tratados de Methuen de 1703: guerra, portos, panos e vinhos.

According to the author, "this work aims to reinterprete the Methuen Treaty signed by Portugal and England in 1703. Based in a geopolitcal axis the analyses pretend to reinsert its particular historical meaning, assuming as hipothesys that it has to be read together with contemporary treaties, and that all together they have to respond the quest of security imposed by de Spanish Sucession War (1701-1715).
The investigation developes under the perspective of the Theory of Global Power (FIORI, 2004; 2007), by which centralize power relations and interstate rivalry.
Registered by Castro (1856), Colleção dos Tratados, Convenções e Actos Públicos Celebrados entre a Coroa de Portugal e as Mais Potencias desde 1640 até o Presente¸ a diacronical reading of the portuguese international treaties will escort the reframing of Methuen Treaty along the historical process of regaining polical individuality from Spain in the Restauration War (1640-1688) and its autonomous reintegration in the european political system (1668-1701); simultaneously the Spanish Sucession War is read up on the generalization of continental competitiveness acumulated along the second half of the XVII century."
