Race in the Atlantic World, 1700-1900

Published in cooperation with the Library Company of Philadelphia's Program in African American History.

Emphasizing comparative and transnational approaches, Race in the Atlantic World, 1700–1900 focuses on the development of, and challenges to, racialized inequality in Atlantic culture, with a particular focus on the Americas. Books in the series explore the evolving meanings of race, slavery, and nation; African identity formation across the Atlantic world; and struggles over emancipation and its aftermath.
