Atlantic history, with its emphasis on inter-regional developments that transcend national borders, has risen to prominence as a fruitful perspective through which to study the interconnections among Europe, North America, Latin America, and Africa. These original essays present a comprehensive and incisive look at how Atlantic history has been interpreted across time and through a variety of lenses from the fifteenth through the early nineteenth century. Editors Jack P. Greene and Philip D. Morgan have assembled a stellar cast of thirteen international scholars to discuss key areas of Atlantic history, including the British, Spanish, Portuguese, Dutch, French, African, and indigenous worlds, as well as the movement of ideas, peoples, and goods. Other contributors assess contemporary understandings of the ocean and present alternatives to the concept itself, juxtaposing Atlantic history with global, hemispheric, and Continental history.

Review:


"These essays should be enough to get any graduate seminar talking."--William and Mary Quarterly


"Atlantic history has become one of the most exciting branches of historical writing, but does it have a future? By inviting skeptics as well as devotees to reflect on current research and future prospects for the integrated study of the Atlantic world, the editors of this stimulating collection of essays have performed a notable service."--J. H. Elliott, author of Empires of the Atlantic World


"Featuring some of the brightest minds in early modern history debating one of its most important subjects, Atlantic History: A Critical Appraisal will serve as the indispensable point of entry for the next generation of Atlantic world scholarship. This engaging volume makes good on a longstanding need to examine Latin America, Native America, the Caribbean, and the North American interior alongside the British seaboard. Cogent critiques and robust defenses match Atlantic perspectives up against continental and global alternatives. The provocative result is a testimony to the creativity, thematic range, and ongoing relevance of the idea of an interconnected Atlantic world."--S. Max Edelson, University of Virginia


"Much has been written in abstract terms about what Atlantic history is and is not. Atlantic History: A Critical Appraisal provides every interested reader an excellent entrée to the theory and practice of Atlantic history informed by the latest research."--Karen Ordahl Kupperman, author of The Jamestown Project


"Comprehensive, illuminating, engaging and challenging...[A]n impressive addition to Atlantic and comparative history."--The Americas


"A generation ago Greene coedited with J.R. Pole a seminal collection of historiographical essays entitled Colonial British America...Despite its guarded enthusiasm for a particularly illuminating new direction on what might be an endless intellectual cruise, this sea-chart of Atlantic history is just as helpful, and could become almost as influential as its predecessor."--American Historical Review


"The 'competing perspectives' offered in this collection of essays are extremely useful to any student or researcher of the early modern period as they provide an opportunity for critical reflection."--Kelvingrove Review


"The state of the art in the rapidly growing field of Atlantic history. With a distinguished roster of contributors, this book will be the source of first resort for students and scholars seeking to deepen their understanding of the history and historiography of the early modern Atlantic world...It seems likely that Atlantic History will define the topic for years to come."--Erik R. Seeman, Journal of World History

Book Description Oxford University Press Inc, United States, 2008. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. The second volume in the OUP/National History Center series, Reinterpreting History, this book offers an incisive look at how interpretations of the Atlantic world have changed over time and from a variety of national perspectives. Atlantic history, which developed in the 1970s and has become very popular in the past several years, looks at the transnational interconnections between Europe, North America, South America, and Africa, particularly in the early modern/colonial period, rather than understanding nations/states absent a broader global context. This volume discusses key areas of the Atlantic world, including the British, Dutch, French, Iberian, and African Atlantic, as well as the movement of ideas, peoples, and goods. It also offers critical perspectives of the concept itself, juxtaposing it with global and Continental history. The cast of contributors is stellar and international, including scholars who have been at the forefront of teaching and research in this area. Together they will create a volume that introduces inexperienced students and general readers to Atlantic history, as well as offers new perspectives for scholars. Atlantic history is taught as its own course at a variety of universities, and Atlantic perspectives are incorporated into courses on early modern Europe, British history, colonial America, colonial Latin America, and African history.
