"... With no chance, no time, of going through the highly specialized books, I was waiting for luck to smile on me one day. He smiled (...) for the work and grace of José Bento Duarte, who published a book called "Lords of the Sun and Wind", which provides us with the opportunity to learn much about Angola (...) For those who were interested — as was my case — in knowing Africa before colonial times, its history, peoples, and powers, this will be a book not to be missed."

"(...) I fell on "Lords of the Sun and Wind", José Bento Duarte. And with him I immersed myself in the history of Angola (...) It is the full chronicle of the colonization of the coast, seeking to consolidate warehouses of commerce or points of support en route to the supreme ambition of the Indies. Bento Duarte tells it in absorbing prose, naming the protagonists — people of all kinds where heroes, rascals, adventurers, dedicated employees and rebels without king or roque are mixed. For these people, the vast Interior of Angola has always been a place of unnamed mysteries and dangers, but also of eldorados and riches waiting to be taken (...) Bento Duarte evokes angolan land as so many still feel it."
