    This is a sourcebook on the "revolutionary Atlantic," a term historians increasingly use to describe the way the many revolutions from 1776 (USA) to 1826 (end of the wars of independence in Latin America) can be viewed as part of a connected whole. It is the first text to examine the American Revolution, the French Revolution, the Haitian Revolution, and the various Latin American Revolutions from a synoptic perspective.

    Publisher reviews

    Rafe Blaufarb's compilation and translation of political documetns from the Age of Revolutions provides an excellent reader for scholars and students who seek to compare the precepts and arguments in favor of democracy, equality and independence that emerged during the French and Haitian revolution with key texts from North American and Napoleonic-era Latin American independence movements." * Jordana Dym, Skidmore College * The Revolutionary Atlantic is an essential resource for anyone interested in the political upheavals that culminated in the American, French, Haitian, and Latin American Revolutions of the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. Through its concise chapter introductions and vast array of documents focused on the period's new political ideas, The Revolutionary Atlantic reveals the connections among notions of republicanism and equality that sprang up around the Atlantic World. It also reveals the host of actors - elite European descended men, indigenous peoples, women, slaves, serfs, and the urban poor - who gave local meaning and form to those ideals through their words and deeds. The Revolutionary Atlantic is a most welcome addition to the literature on the Age of Revolutions." * Rebecca Hartkopf Schloss, Texas A & M University * Fascinating and comprehensive collection of primary sources ont he Age of Revolutions, ranging from Enlightenment political theory to empire and slavery. Blaufarb treats the U.S., French, Haitian and Latin American Revolutions as a common movement. His chronological coverage is truly impressive, spanning from the Seven Years' War to the 1820s. Will be tremendously useful to instructors seeking to connect the different Atlantic Revolutions." * Alyssa Sepinwall, California State University - San Marcos * Encompassing the major rebellions that transformed the Atlantic world in the Age of Revolutions, The Revolutionary Atlantic is a major achievement. Blaufarb's collection of documents records the voices of elites and masses alike, and is remarkably coherent thanks to its focus on political ideas, not events. Highly recommended for students and scholars." * Willem Klooster, Clark University *

    Calculating estimated delivery times

    Delivery is estimated at 1-3 working days after dispatch (depending upon options chosen at checkout) PLUS the "Availability" time estimate given in the product price section at the top of the page. Ex. if this states "Usually Dispatched Within 1 Working Day" and you order at 11am the delivery estimate would be 3 days. Orders from 6pm for example wouldn't process that day so delivery estimate would be 4 days. Also please note that we do not dispatch on the weekend and do not class these as working days.

    Sorry if this occurs with your order - we are still processing the order and will dispatch ASAP. Typically any delays encountered are for just a 24 hour period. If you wish to cancel the order & source elsewhere please contact us.

    What if my shipment is overdue?

    FAQ

    Why is next day delivery not available?

    As the site gets bigger it will be but we don't have sufficient volume to offer this currently.

    Can I collect from your warehouse?

    No sorry. We are internet trading only, previously we did have a bookshop where this was possible.

    How can I enter a coupon code?

    On the cart page under the "Use A Coupon" tab.

    Do you guarantee delivery by a particular date?

    No we don't sorry - we ship to over 100 countries through many different carriers and cannot offer a guarantee that your order will arrive within a particular timeframe.

    Can I order by phone?

    Sorry this isn't available for smaller orders (under £250), the costs of telephone staff don't cover the extra sales generated.

    Do you have fly fishing by JR Hartley?

    Sorry out of stock - if it's not for sale on the site we don't have it. We may add the ability to pre-order titles in the future.

    Are all items held in stock?

    Not all - we have over £900,000 of stock in our warehouse but would need tens of millions of pounds worth of inventory to have just 1 copy of everything for sale on the site. We place daily orders with in excess of 100 publishers and wholesalers who typically deliver into us next day. Also please note if placing a larger order the delivery time frame may slightly increase due to the need to possibly source titles from multiple suppliers. Please note this is the same model used by nearly all online booksellers.

    I'm pleased with your service and want to leave a review of your site?

    Please if you are so inclined leave a review on Google. We seem to have picked up 6 bad reviews and just 4 good ones (from over 170k orders under the booksplease name). Hardly anyone leaves a review for us on there but this is the first thing you see googling our name so we rely on happy customers helping us out.

    I've never ordered off you is it safe?

    It's safe & all will be ok - you may have ordered from us before under our previous selling name "Aphrohead" - we have processed around 18,000,000 orders since the companies formation in 2005. We are located in Southport, UK
