Editorial Reviews

Review

"Fascinating case studies of how authority was both brutal yet precarious and malleable in the French, Spanish, English, and Dutch empires of the New World."—American Historical Review



"This is an almost ideal anthology for graduate students and scholars still weighing the value of Atlantic-world scholarship. The essays are consistently strong and jargon-free. Editors and authors have produced a crisp, coherent, and readable volume whose case studies and arguments should stimulate discussion on the merits of the connecting themes rather than suffer cannibalization by specialists perusing only contributions from a particular geographic region."—Hispanic American Historical Review



"This wide-ranging collection . . . offers [a] compelling framework to connect the small triumphs and tragedies of daily life in colonial outposts with the grand plans of distant empire builders."—Journal of the Early Republic

More About the Author

Raised and educated on the east coast, I have been a committed Californian since I started at UC Davis in 2001. My first book, based on my 2001 Ph.D. dissertation from the University of Pennsylvania, traced the creation of a creole culture among Quakers during Pennsylvania's first five decades. My current book project explores similar questions of cultural transformation and power, albeit in a different region of Anglo-America. I have recently embarked on a multigenerational study of the Carter family slaves from roughly the 1600s to the early 1800s, looking at identity formation among slave communities on several Virginian plantations. I have also written previously on gender, politics and the public sphere, and comparative colonization in the Americas.
