Editorial Reviews

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...an 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
