520 2  "On All Saints Day of 1755, the tremors from a magnitude 
       8.5 earthquake swept furiously from its epicenter in the 
       Atlantic Ocean toward the Iberian Peninsula. Nowhere was 
       it felt more than in Lisbon, then the thriving capital of 
       a great global empire. In a few minutes most of Lisbon was
       destroyed--but that was only the beginning. A tsunami 
       swept away most of the ruined coast along the Tagus River 
       and carried untold souls out to sea. When fire broke out 
       across the city, the surviving Lisboetas were subject to a
       firestorm reaching temperatures over 1,832 degrees F. 
       Drawing on a wealth of new sources, on modern science 
       (geology did not exist then), and on a sophisticated grasp
       of Portuguese history, Molesky gives us the definitive 
       account of the destruction, of history's first 
       international relief effort, and of the dampening effects 
       these events had on the optimistic spirit of the 
       Enlightenment"--Provided by pulisher.
