Description - Atlantic American Societies by Alan Karras

Within the chronological framework of implantation, maturity and transition, this volume traces the history of European expansion in the Americas. Treating the Atlantic world as a unit, it emphasizes the links between Africa, Europe and the Americas, outlining the process of transatlantic intercultural integration that began after Columbus' voyages. Atlantic American Societies collects some of the best recent scholarship and combines a variety of approaches from epidemiological to labour history and ethnohistory to explore the interdependence and interaction of West European, West African and Amerindian peoples and culture. Students are encouraged to see the larger interimperial issues which governed behaviour in both the new world and the old, by focusing, not only on the commercial and demographic history and military and economic interaction between metropolitan regions and their colonies, but on the cultural components of American expansion.
