Quote of the Day
Carcanet Press is our most courageous publisher. When you look at what they have brought out since their beginnings, it makes so many other houses seem timid or merely predictable.

C.R. Boxer

  • About
  • Charles Boxer was born in 1904. He was commissioned into the Lincolnshire regiment in 1923, serving until 1947 when he retired as a Major. He then became Camões Professor of Portuguese at London University (1947-51, 1953-67), Professor of the History of the Far East at the School of Oriental and African studies (1951-53) and Professor of the Expansion of Europe Overseas at Yale (1967-72). Numerous publications have established his pre-eminence in his chosen field of studies, a position to which several honorary doctorates from leading universities around the world attest. In active retirement, he remains Emeritus Professor at both London and Yale Universities.
