Editorial Reviews

Review

This rich volume makes a valuable contribution to early modern Atlantic history and to Jewish studies. It is original, substantial, and theoretically sophisticated.

(Lois Dubin, Smith College)

These authors provide a window onto a diverse and fascinating world that challenges a host of popular notions.

(Renaissance Quarterly)

This volume includes pieces by such scholars as Jonathan Israel and Daviken Studnick-Gizbert, who have made outstanding contributions to our knowledge of the international activities, and the social and mental worlds, of the Marrano mercantile community.

(New York Review of Books)

This volume offers an excellent rebuttal to those who think that either Jews or the Atlantic stand apart from nation and empire.

(David Hancock Journal of Interdisciplinary History)

A major contribution... Sophisticated analyses of culture and excellent archival research, integrating both with the burgeoning field of Atlantic Studies.

(David Graizbord American Jewish History)

Atlantic Diasporas will inform even experts in a diversity of fields.

(Jonathan Schorsch New West Indian Guide)

This volume is a very important contribution to our understanding of a very complex diaspora that defies simplistic generalizations.

(Ana Schaposchnik Journal of World History)

Refashioned the very concept of diaspora and made it into a viable model by which to examine the history of migration and ethnicity.

(Rachel Kranson Journal of American Ethnic History)

Atlantic Diasporas is well organized, fascinating, groundbreaking, and extremely useful both as a platform to promote further research and as an assigned text.

(Stanley Mirvis H-LatAm, H-Net Reviews)

A wonderful anthology of highly respected experts on the subject of the multitude of diasporas, of Jews being thrown out of place after place.

The book is good, expensive though. However, this book was not one that I was interested in or enjoyed. It was required for a Master's History class.

Well worth reading if you are interested in the diaspora of the Jews and info on the Indians of the Americas.
