Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book titled Chains of Gold: Portuguese Migration to Argentina in Transatlantic Perspective contains the Table of Contents, a list of illustrations, a list of maps, tables and figures, a list of abbreviations and the Acknowledgements. The book examines the social, economic, and cultural contexts in which this strategy developed, the experiences of those who pursued it, and the multiple paths followed by migrants as they settled in different destinations. In order to explore the role of social networks and the ways in which migrants adapted to different local host societies, the second part of the book focuses on the experiences of Portuguese communities that emerged in two contrasting places: Villa Elisa, and La Plata. Algarvian migrants formed the largest groups among the Portuguese immigrants in both communities, most of whom hailed from the two rural parishes studied in the first part of the book.

Keywords: Algarvian migrants; Argentina; Portuguese migration
