About this book

Since 300 B.C.E., the Atlantic has served as the corridor for fundamental exchanges of peoples and technologies and as a pathway for the transfer of ideas and cultures. This, the first illustrated and comprehensive history of the Atlantic World, is at the forefront of an exciting new wave of study in universities and think tanks. Atlantic History is an increasingly dynamic field of scholarship based on the notion that the Americas, Africa and Europe have composed a regional system from the late 15th century to the present. Sandler explores the historical, socioeconomic, political, scientific and cultural developments that occurred throughout this region and shaped the modern world. They include everything from exploration and discovery, the dissemination of ideas, the growth of global commerce and the fall of imperialism. Lavishly illustrated with exquisite antique maps, period paintings and engravings, documents, political cartoons and photographs, this unique volume is an engaging read sure to appeal to audiences everywhere.
