The Oxford Handbook of the Atlantic World: 1450-1850 (Oxford Handbooks): Nicholas Canny, Philip Morgan

 

The essays in this volume provide a comprehensive overview of Atlantic history from c.1450 to c.1850, offering a wide-ranging and authoritative account of the movement of people, plants, pathogens, products, and cultural practices–to mention some of the key agents–around and within the Atlantic basin. As a result of these movements, new peoples, economies, societies, polities, and cultures arose in the lands and islands touched by the Atlantic Ocean, while others were destroyed.
