Chapter Summary

This chapter will detail and analyse the matters brought up for deliberation by the centre in matters of war and diplomacy to prove there was continual engagement to sustain India during a fluctuating and tense period there during the first half of the eighteenth century. In terms of the overall thesis, this chapter will show that the instruments of state, in particular diplomacy and the use of organised force, were important in propping up the formal Estado da Índia, so often overlooked in the study of eighteenth-century Portuguese India. The treatment of violence in this chapter and the next is intended to explore the term more in usage as part of statecraft. Diplomacy was an instrument that was readily used by the Portuguese in preserving their existence. In the general repertoire of foreign policy instruments in the present or pre-modern context.
