Joaquim Romero Magalhães was to begin with a regional historian rooted in the French Annales tradition of social and economic history. His regional history of the Algarve in the sixteenth to eighteenth centuries overflows into the much wider and evolving complexes within which the Portuguese region was framed-the ageing Mediterranean and the growing Atlantic, and their shifting balance in the weaving of a new world economy. It is in the regional origins of Romero Magalhães's trajectory that we find many of the topics and problems that he developed in his historical travels across the empire.
