Summary

The World of Colonial America: An Atlantic Handbook offers a comprehensive and in-depth survey of cutting-edge research into the communities, cultures, and colonies that comprised colonial America, with a focus on the processes through which communities were created, destroyed, and recreated that were at the heart of the Atlantic experience. With contributions written by leading scholars from a variety of viewpoints, the book explores key topics such as

-- The Spanish, French, and Dutch Atlantic empires

-- The role of the indigenous people, as imperial allies, trade partners, and opponents of expansion

-- Puritanism, Protestantism, Catholicism, and the role of religion in colonization

-- The importance of slavery in the development of the colonial economies

-- The evolution of core areas, and their relationship to frontier zones

-- The emergence of the English imperial state as a hegemonic world power after 1688

-- Regional developments in colonial North America.

Bringing together leading scholars in the field to explain the latest research on Colonial America and its place in the Atlantic World, this is an important reference for all advanced students, researchers, and professionals working in the field of early American history or the age of empires.
