Description

"Transatlantic History" offers a comprehensive look at the early stages of Atlantic exploration, the subsequent cultural exchange among Africans, Native Americans, and Europeans, and the resulting emergence of a modern global community. Through comparative analyses, scholarly investigations, and multidisciplinary approaches, this volume contributes to the growing field of transatlantic history, addressing issues of cartographic representation, creolization, economic modernization, urbanization, and migration. The chapters and their authors include: "Transatlantic History in World Perspective," by William H. McNeill; "Economy and Society in the Iberian Atlantic: The Seventeenth-Century Crisis," by Carla Rahn Philips; "Establishing a Transatlantic Graphic Dialogue, 1492-1800," by Dennis Reinhartz; "Urbanization in the Old World and in the New," by David Buisseret; "The Power of Numbers: Settler and Native in Ireland, America, and South Africa, 1600-1900," by Stanley H. Palmer; and "In Search of America: The New West African Diaspora," by Alusine Jalloh. As a whole, the volume embraces a wide range of academic disciplines and fields in order to highlight Atlantic interconnections in unique ways. Readers interested in world history and communication studies, as well as those wanting to learn more about the cultural tapestry that continues to weave the continents together, will find these scholars' contributions rewarding.show more
