This reader, composed of original essays by leading authors, expands the category of the Atlantic chronologically, spatially, and methodologically. It firmly places the Atlantic within global history and the coverage expands into the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. The essays present events that formed the nations and cultures of the Atlantic region and show their global roots and how they intertwine with non-Atlantic communities of the world.

'The articles included in this collection are richly informative, well researched, and shed light on diverse interpretations of the Atlantic World. I have used the first edition of The Atlantic in Global History, 1500-2000 with great success in university classrooms for a decade. The editors and contributors merit praise for sharing their profound insights.'
