In the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, revolutions transformed the British, French, and Spanish Atlantic worlds. Revolutions in the Atlantic World wields a comparative lens to reveal several central themes in the field of Atlantic history, from the concept of European empire and the murky position it occupied between Old and New Worlds to slavery and diasporas. How was the stability of the old regimes undermined? Which mechanisms of successful popular mobilization can be observed? What roles did blacks and Indians play? Drawing on both primary documents and extant secondary literature to answer these questions, Wim Klooster portrays the revolutions as parallel and connected uprisings. Book jacket.
Wim Klooster is Associate Professor of history at Clark University. He is co-editor of The Atlantic World: Essays on Slavery, Migration, and Imagination.
