'Assembling the Tropics provides a richly empirical and compellingly dynamic perspective on medicine and natural history across the early modern Portuguese empire. Mobilizing case studies from Africa, India, and Brazil, Cagle shows how diverse cultures of natural inquiry in metropolitan Lisbon and its colonies fitfully converged on a coherent vision of the tropics.' Florence C. Hsia, University of Wisconsin, Madison
'... wide-ranging, richly researched and closely reasoned ... Assembling the Tropics builds upon the extensive secondary literature that has grown up around the early Portuguese empire in recent decades...' David Arnold, Social History of Medicine
