About this book

This volume examines the impact of the wars in the Atlantic world between 1770 and 1830, focusing both on the military, economic, political, social and cultural demobilization that occurred immediately at their end, and their long-term legacy and memory.

Reviews

“This impressive and stimulating collection of papers highlights why war was a crucible of change in global politics at the dawn of the nineteenth century, as well as the tenacity of the community structures it failed to shatter.” (Tom Stammers, French History, Vol. 33 (1), March, 2019)
“This volume is a thought-provoking collection of essays borne out of a 2013 international conference. … as historical study continues to turn increasingly to encompass a wider view outside the national narrative, this edited collection can claim to have set the course for new and exciting future studies in what is a popular and ever expanding area of research.” (Mario Draper, European History Quarterly, Vol. 47 (1), 2017)
