The Atlantic world is a constantly shifting arena, but one which has been a focus of huge and vibrant debate for many years.In over fifty chapters, all written by experts in the field, The Atlantic World takes up these debates and gathers together key, original scholarship in the area. Thematically structured, the volume covers a broad range of subjects. Part 1 investigates the exploration and investigation of the Atlantic, from navigation and cartography to the natural world. Part 2 explores the migration of people across the Atlantic in many different guises, from slavery and the slave trade to religious migration. Other parts go on to look at cultural encounters, governance, economy and empire, how ideas circulated across and around the Atlantic and outside this geographical sphere as well and Atlantic revolutions, such as the wars of independence and the slave revolts.Including an introductory essay from the editor which defines the field and lavishly illustrated with paintings and drawings and maps this accessible volume is invaluable reading for all students and scholars of this broad sweep of world history.
