about

An accessible survey of the history of European overseas empires in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries based on new scholarship

In this thematic survey, Gabriel Paquette focuses on the evolution of the Spanish, Portuguese, English, French, and Dutch overseas empires in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. He draws on recent advances in the field to examine their development, from efficacious forms of governance to coercive violence. Beginning with a narrative overview of imperial expansion that incorporates recent critiques of older scholarly approaches, Paquette then analyzes the significance of these empires, including their political, economic, and social consequences and legacies. He makes the multifaceted history of Europe’s globe-spanning empires in this crucial period accessible to new readers.
Gabriel Paquette is dean of the Robert D. Clark Honors College and professor of history at the University of Oregon. He is author of Imperial Portugal in the Age of Atlantic Revolutions: The Luso-Brazilian World, c. 1770–1850 and Enlightenment, Governance, and Reform in Spain and Its Empire, 1759–1808.
