Mascarenhas Barreto is a Portuguese writer fallen in disgrace. He dared to spend a big portion of his adult life questioning the establishment and wondering how come documental proof is not being taken seriously about Columbus (if that is his real name) and his background. For that he is considered a personna non grata in the circles of the so-called "professional historians" (not by all of them fortunately)! Don't expect this book to be taught in any school in the USA, Italy or Spain. Mr. Barretos' works are considered to be sinful. In a way Mr. Barreto's critics address hiw works in a somehow similar to the middle ages watchdogs and the burning on stake activities, that a particular Institution was so proud of in order to prevent the truth to come out to challenge the "established" truth. This book is a very serious document that you should read if for nothing else than to get an overall perspective of why the Columbus' issue is one of the best kept secrets in the Library of Congress.
