The Revolutionary Atlantic

Republican Visions, 1760-1830: A Documentary History

Edited by Rafe Blaufarb

The Revolutionary Atlantic: Republican Visions, 1760-1830: A Documentary History is the first book to bring together primary sources on the four major revolutions--American, French, Haitian, and Spanish--that comprised the Age of Atlantic Revolutions. There are primary sourcebooks on all of these revolutions, but never before have documents from all four revolutions been brought together within a single volume so that the revolutionary republican movement can be examined as a whole. Unlike the selections found in other texts, the documents in The Revolutionary Atlantic do not skimp on length, allowing instructors and students to delve deeply into major issues of republican revolution. Combining classic, foundational texts, like Madison's 10th Federalist essay, and more obscure sources, such as archival peasant accounts of the Great Fear, The Revolutionary Atlantic is an indispensable resource for teaching Atlantic history.
