Was the British Atlantic shaped more by imperial rivalries or by the actions of subnational groups with a variety of economic, social, and religious agendas? The Creation of the British Atlantic World analyzes the interrelationship between these competing explanations for the development of the British Atlantic by examining migration patterns on both the macro and micro level. It also scrutinizes the roles played by trade, religion, ethnicity, and class in linking Atlantic borders and the increasingly complicated legal, intellectual and emotional relationship between the British sovereign and colonial charterholders.

Contributors include Joyce E. Chaplin, John E. Crowley, David Barry Gaspar, April Lee Hatfield, James Horn, Ray A. Kea, Elizabeth Mancke, Philip D. Morgan, William M. Offutt, Robert Olwell, Carole Shammas, Wolfgang Splitter, Mark L. Thompson, Karin Wulf, Avihu Zakai.

"This is a seminal collection that over the years will provide both inspiration and guidance to those striving to understand the 'how' and 'why' of imperialism and imperial historiography."—Itinerario: European Journal of Overseas History

"The popularity of Atlantic history is proven by a stream of publications in recent years, but few have attained the quality of this excellent collection."—Journal of American History

"The contributors and editors have done us a great service by bringing together in one volume some of the more creative and novel approaches to Atlantic history."—Journal of World History

Elizabeth Mancke is a professor of history and the Canada Research Chair in Atlantic Canada Studies at the University of New Brunswick. Carole Shammas is the John R. Hubbard Chair Emerita in History at the University of Southern California.
