C.R. Boxer was a leading scholar in the study of Dutch and Portuguese colonial empires.

Boxer enjoyed a prolific and varied career as a soldier, historian, and university teacher. He was born in Sandown on the Isle of Wight in 1904, and was educated at Wellington College and the Royal Military College at Sandhurst. Boxer served in the British army from 1923 to 1946, when he retired with the rank of Major. He died in April 2000. Boxer's research and writings deal with European overseas expansion and colonization of various parts of the world: the Far East, Latin America, and Africa. His studies of the European maritime empires are so comprehensive that he is claimed as much as a specialist in Portuguese history as in African history. His substantial scholarly research and writings in the field of East Asian studies, particularly those dealing with Japan, China, and Macao, constitute a major contribution to our understanding of that region's culture and history.
