Editorial Reviews


"The end result is an excellent volume - and not one easily managed. It is concise (on topics that are not easily presented in a concise form), and well-written, and it has something new to say on all his chosen themes. It is an unusual book in that it is important both for scholars in the field and especially students trying to make sense of the history of British slavery." James Walvin, "New West Indian Guide" 83:3 (2009) 290-293.

Shaping the Stewart World: 1603-1714 The Atlantic Connection

Edited By Allan I. Macinnes and Arthur H. Williamson

2006: Brill Academic Publishers

Reviewed by FoundersofAmerica.org

Shakespeare first mentions "America" in his play, Comedy of Errors, perhaps ten years before the reign of the Stuarts, demonstrating that America was already well established in the minds of the average London theater-goer. If even the "goundlings" heard of the largely unknown land, policy makers and capitalists were well aware that a share of America's wealth could be theirs with investment, determination, and perhaps some species of war. What those with an eye to the New World could not know was what would happen to Europe through interaction with, and competition for, America. Happily, Shaping the Stuart World: 1603-1714 The Atlantic Connection begins to fill in this intriguing story of early American-European history.

Shaping the Stuart World reveals deep understanding of a subject often ignored in America through several essays by leading academics from both the United States and Europe. Resulting from two international conferences, the collected works offers political and social explanations to questions overlooked by most narrative histories and even merely touched upon in the university classroom.

Visitors to FoundersofAmerica.org will appreciate that a significant portion of the work deals with Virginia in the swirl of political, religious and social ferment of the early 17th century. This is not to say the work has a parochial approach, indeed, it may be defined by its amazing topical sweep while offering impressive academic depth.
