As Bernard Bailyn describes in the opening pages of his most recent book, Atlantic history has rapidly become a popular and significant field within the broader discipline of history...Now, from his vantage point as one of the leading figures in this field, Bailyn has written a valedictory examination of its development and major issues. Atlantic History: Concept and Contours will serve current and future historians as both an effective introduction to the field and an advanced exploration of its historiography. As is the case with Bailyn's many other books, Atlantic History is written in a clear and concise fashion...Regardless of the reader's level of experience, it will be an enjoyable and fascinating exploration of a global perspective on the Atlantic world. Like so much of his scholarship, Bernard Bailyn's most recent book is certain to find a place of prominence on required reading lists and professors' bookshelves. I join with others in recommending it to readers.--William E. Doody "Journal of World History "
In part thanks to Bailyn's advocacy, inspiration, and entrepreneurship, the richness and popularity of Atlantic history have burgeoned astonishingly...Bailyn's purpose in his short and invaluable Atlantic History is to trace and celebrate the evolution of Atlantic history as an idea, and to set out his personal interpretation of its main contours in the period between the earliest European invasions of the Americas and the American Revolution.-- (06/22/2006)
This might be one of the shorter books published by Bernard Bailyn in his long and productive career, but it promises to be one of his more influential...Atlantic History delineates a vast research agenda that calls for attention...and it also provides evidence, deriving from his own research and reflection, of just how fruitful the outcomes will be for those willing to pursue the lines and methods he suggests.--Nicholas Canny "International Journal of Maritime History "
