    The history of Mputo, the capital of Mozambique, traces its origins back over years, when a fishing village developed by Maputo Bay on the site where the modern city of Maputo now stands. The first Europeans to discover the bay were Portuguese navigators led by António de Campo in In , the Portuguese merchant and explorer Lourenço Marques reached the bay and named it Delagoa Bay. I thought, I would write another book, a better one, taking the criticism and new fi ndings into account. Th e book focuses on an area called Maúa, not because I believe Maúa represents the whole of Mozambique as such, but because highlighting a specifi c area and people helps to understand the Mozambican history more deeply and comprehensively.

    This book summarizes five hundred years of the history of the societiesthat exist within the area that became Mozambique in It also takes the storyup to the present, including the War of Liberation and Mozambique afterindependence. It is work of major scholarship that will appeal to experts andstudents alike/5(1).   A chronology of key events in the history of Mozambique from the third century AD to the present day.
