Although our age has become host to a number of academic disciplines called area studies, including for example, African Studies and American Studies, these divisions do not capture the truly unique relationship of the lands joined by the Atlantic Ocean. Accordingly, a new area, called Transatlantic Studies, has emerged. This seminal work attempts to: define clearly the term Transatlantic Studies; locate Transatlantic studies academically; supply the field's critical perspective; discuss issues of globalization, migration, and the law. The collection is appropriately international and inter-disciplinary.
