Editorial Reviews

"The essays are well written and provide ample support for the authors' arguments. As a group, they provide a new viewpoint of Atlantic history far more complex and interesting than the previous, rather simplistic model of transatlantic exchange. The collection places the age of democratic revolution in a new context while highlighting the link between economics and politics... Highly recommended." —CHOICE
