This important new contribution to the study of Atlantic history brings together eight original essays by such leading scholars as Jorge Canizares-Esguerra, Paul Lovejoy, David Eltis, and Benjamin Schmidt on the many connections between the Old World and the New World in the early modern period. With an introduction by Wim Klooster, the four sets of paired essays examine the role of specific port cities in Atlantic history, aspects of European migration, the African dimension, and ways in which the Atlantic world has been imagined. Numerous maps and illustrations further enrich this vital new contribution to undergraduate and graduate courses of study in Atlantic history.

Alfred Padula began his professional career as a servitor of the Cold War, first in Naval Intelligence and thereafter in the State Department. His work as Cuban analyst precipitated a lifelong interest in that country. Receipt of a Ford Foundation Fellowship for the Study of Revolutions led him into academia, specifically at the University of Southern Maine (USM) in the seaport city of Portland, where he could also indulge his interests as a small boat sailor. At USM, Professor Padula taught Latin American history, and produced numerous papers, reviews, and articles on Cuban issues, climaxing in a volume on women and the Cuban revolution: Sex and Revolution. Women in Socialist Cuba (Oxford, 1995).Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:
This book began its life as a lecture series that we convened at the University of Southern Maine in the academic year 2000-2001. We paired scholars in the same subfield of Atlantic history on four occasions and asked them to transform their presentations into book chapters. These chapters shed light on the manifold connections between the Old World and the New in the early modern period. The first set of essays looks at the role of specific port cities in Atlantic history. Subsequent sections explore European migration, the African dimension, and the ways in which the Atlantic world has been imagined.
