Editorial Reviews

"The British Atlantic World will retain its leading place in the field in the wake of this new edition, and will remain an essential starting-point for undergraduate readers. It is still the only work that provides through its individual essays a readily accessible, well-conceived thematic overview." -- Keith Mason, University of Liverpool, UK "[T]he contributors have produced insightful overviews of topics deemed central to any serious investigation of Atlantic history." —Kathleen Wilson, SUNY Stony Brook
