Within the chronological framework of Implantation, Maturation and Transition, this book provides the history of European expansion in the Americas from the age of Columbus through the abolition of slavery. Suggesting a shift in the traditional units of analysis away from nationally defined boundaries, this volume considers all of the Americas - and Africa - to encourage students to see the larger interimperial issues which governed behaviour in both the new world and the old. It also provides students with a mechanism for viewing interimperial rivalries from the largest possible perspective, by focusing, not only on commercial and demographic history and military and economic interaction between metropolitan regions and their colonies, but on the interdependence of European, African, and Amerindian peoples and culture.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"After Columbus, the Atlantic Ocean connected rather than separated Europe, Africa and the Americas, and their histories became interwoven on several levels. This book is a deeply imaginative and thought-provoking collection of new and old studies that reveal the foundations and evolution of the multidimentional interconnections within what became an Atlantic community of societies between the fifteenth and nineteenth centuries. The chapters illustrate the potential of an Atlantic approach to many historical issues that cannot be adequately explored in any other way.."
-David Barry Gaspar, Duke Univeristy
"Rather than seeing the creation of the Atlantic world as the triumphant story of European expansion, this volume, by examining the multiple dimensions of contact between Europeans, Native Americans, and Africans, presents a far more complex, if more tragic vision of the foundations of the Atlantic colonial system."
-Stuart B. Schwartz, Director, Center for Early Modern History, University of Minnesota
