9780813933917: Creating the British Atlantic: Essays on Transplantation, Adaptation, and Continuity (Early American Histories)

Set mostly within an expansive British imperial and transatlantic framework, this new selection of writings from the renowned historian Jack P. Greene draws on themes he has been developing throughout his distinguished career. In these essays Greene explores the efforts to impose Old World institutions, identities, and values upon the New World societies being created during the colonization process. He shows how transplanted Old World components―political, legal, and social―were adapted to meet the demands of new, economically viable, expansive cultural hearths. Greene argues that these transplantations and adaptations were of fundamental importance in the formation and evolution of the new American republic and the society it represented.

The scope of this work allows Greene to consider in depth numerous subjects, including the dynamics of colonization, the development and character of provincial identities, the relationship between new settler societies in America and the emerging British Empire, and the role of cultural power in social and political formation.

About the Author:

Jack P. Greene is Andrew W. Mellon Professor in the Humanities Emeritus at Johns Hopkins University, where he founded the Program in Atlantic History and Culture. He is coeditor, with Philip D. Morgan, of Atlantic History: A Critical Reappraisal and the author of Interpreting Early America: Historiographical Essays (Virginia).

Review:

In the fields of early American and Atlantic history, there is no more prolific or provocative essayist than Jack Greene, whose articles as well as books over the past six decades have fundamentally reshaped the landscape of historical study. These essays, no less than earlier offerings by Greene, testify powerfully to the singular prominence that his work has long enjoyed.

(A. Roger Ekirch, Virginia Polytechnic Institute, author of At Day’s Close: Night in Times Past)

Greene draws together vast amounts of information and proposes clear, general models... A familiarity with Jack Greene's work is a sine qua non for scholars of the early modern British colonial world.

(The Historian)
