Old World, New World: America and Europe in theAge of Jefferson grew out of workshops in Salzburg andCharlottesville sponsored by Monticello's International Center for JeffersonStudies, and revisits a question of long-standing interest to American historians:the nature of the relationship between America and Europe during the Age ofRevolution. Study of the American-European relationship in recent years has beenmoved forward by the notion of Atlantic history and the study of the Atlantic world.The present volume adds a fresh contribution in that it refocuses attention to thequestion of the interdependent relationship between Europe and America.Old World, New World addressestopics that are both timely, given contemporary public events, but that are also ofinterest to early modern and modern historians. By focusing on the question of therelationship between America and Europe, as well as using Thomas Jefferson as a lensto examine this relationship, this book carves out its own niche in the history ofthe Revolutionary Atlantic world.
